This leading international textbook meets the ever-growing need for a clear starting point in understanding the clinical significance of cultural and social factors in how health and ill-health are manifested, and how the problems can be prevented and alleviated.

Fully revised throughout, the fifth edition has expanded its coverage of topics that challenge the reader's understanding of health and illness: poverty and inequalities in healthcare, genetics, the internet and health, chronic diseases, drug resistant infections, changes in nutrition and body image, and medical technology. Migration medicine now receives stronger emphasis and the author has increased coverage of 'the language of distress', a complex topic that is central to the doctor-patient relationship.

In today’s world of increasing cultural, social, religious and ethnic diversity of populations, Culture, Health and Illness is essential reading for students of medicine, nursing, psychiatry, public health, health education, international health and medical anthropology, across the globe.
