Using four different sociological perspectives--structural-funcational, conflict, symbolic interactionist, and feminist--Health, Illness, and Medicine in Canada 4e provides an essential study to the sociology of health. The text examines occupational diseases, environmental challenges, the inequalities of age, gender, class, race, and ethnicity, the experience of getting sick and going to the doctor, and the extensive and profit-motivated impact of the pharmaceutical and medical device industries.
