Review quote

"The new edition of Mel Bartley's excellent, well-written book should be relevant to anyone interested in understanding and addressing the persisting challenge of social inequalities in health. Congratulations on an inspiring, timely and critical contribution!" Johannes Siegrist, Heinrich-Heine University Dusseldorf "This new edition of Mel Bartley's classic book has the authoritative heft of one of the western world's most respected medical sociologists. Her great personal depth of expertise comes across throughout the volume, and the book demonstrates a tight grasp of the conceptual and social theory issues that should underpin high-quality research into health inequalities. The book's newly updated national and international data on health inequalities are especially welcome." John Frank, University of Edinburgh "Mel Bartley's enquiry into health inequalities is admirably thorough and balanced ... What is particularly refreshing is the way in which the different implications for practical action of accepting different models of causation are highlighted ... [An] excellent book." "Health Service Journal" "This book makes an original and major contribution to the body of knowledge on the complex theories of inequalities in health. It is well written and explained in simple terms that encourage the reader to evaluate the original research for themselves." "Australian Social Work" "This book should become essential reading for anyone genuinely interested in understanding health inequalities." "International Journal of Epidemiology"show more
