The field of Health Studies has grown enormously over the last 25 years. Yet surprisingly, until now, no comprehensive and authoritative Dictionary of key terms has been available. This book fills the gap with over 900 terms used in the health studies field. The dictionary:
- Provides one-stop coverage of the social scientific arena in Health Studies
- Offers concise definitions of key terms and thinkers
- Entries are cross indexed to facilitate comprehension
- Focuses on global key terms which apply to the entire field rather
than the application of terms in different countries
Chosen with finesse and understanding of student needs, the entries provide readers with a key resource in the field of Health Studies.
