Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0674385624, Paperback)"Health and Social Change in International Perspective" brings together an interdisciplinary series of approaches to understanding the social dimensions of health change around the world. The contributors - demographers, epidemiologists, economists, anthropologists and public health scientists - are among the intellectual leaders of efforts to respond to the world's health challenges. The book offers broad explorations of the social causes and consequences of health change. The authors address several critical questions: What are the forms and structure of health transitions? Do these changes assume universally consistent patterns, or are health transitions particularistic, reflecting space, time, and community? What are the methodological issues in definition and measurement? And how can understanding improve health policy, interventions, and the research agenda?
