Some brief overview of this book

The reception of Michel Foucaults work in the social sciences and humanities has been phenomenal. Foucaults concepts and methodology have encouraged new approaches to old problems and opened up new lines of enquiry. This book assesses the contribution of Foucaults work to research and thinking in the area of health and medicine, and shows how key researchers in the sociology of health and illness are currently engaging with his ideas.

Foucault, Health and Medicine explores such important issues as: Foucaults concept of discourse, the critique of the medicalization thesis, the analysis of the body and the self, Foucaults concept of bio-power in the analysis of health education, the implications of Foucaults ideas for feminist research on embodiment and gendered subjectivities, the application of Foucaults notion of governmentality to the analysis of health policy, health promotion, and the consumption of health.

Foucault, Health and Medicine offers a state of the art overview of Foucaldian scholarship in the area of health and medicine. It will provide a key reference for both students and researchers working in the areas of medical sociology, health policy, health promotion and feminist studies.

Subjects incl. Foucault & the sociology of health & illness, mental health, criminality & the human sciences, etc.
