"The 300 pages of this book are packed with information oninternational developmentsin palliative care." - Community Care "This book is a must for all those working in the field, an interesting read for others working across the spectrum of health careand core reading for students from a wide range of disciplines studying health policy, sociologyand health care delivery, as we move into the 21st century." - Information Exchange "In terms of student suitability, I would recommend the text for two main reasons. First, it is rich in detail and analysis of developments in palliative care...Second, it allows the students to see how social science based ideas and concepts can be applied to the 'real world'...In overall terms, this text should be a valuable resource for social scientists and practitioners alike. It's bias is towards the latter audience, but I would still urge social science students and researchers interested in death and dying to look at what, I believe, is a very informativeand reasonably priced little book." - Medical Sociology News
