Globalization affects human health in wide-ranging and multifaceted ways, ranging from the behaviors of individuals to broad social, political, and economic contexts within which health and disease occur. This book provides an introduction to these complex linkages through an exploration of the spatial, temporal and cognitive dimensions of global change. Challenging the neglect of health issues within the globalization literature, the book draws on diverse empirical evidence to argue that urgent attention to these impacts is needed.
