Review: "This new edition of Social Determinants of Health takes account of the most recent research in the field, and includes additional chapters on ethnicity and health, sexual behaviours, the elderly, housing, and neighbourhoods. It is written by acknowledged experts in each field, using non-technical language to make the book accessible to students and those with no previous expertise in epidemiology. This volume provides the evidence behind the WHO initiatives on the social determinants of health, known as The Solid Facts handbook." "Social Determinants of Health is the most comprehensive, ground-breaking, and authoritative survey of research findings in this field, and is a must for everyone interested in the wellbeing of modern societies. Public health professionals, health promotion specialists, and anyone working in the many fields of public policy will engage with the issues raised in this book."-- Book jacket.
