Format: Paperback
This revised and updated version of Sociology as Applied to Medicine promises a comprehensive readable introduction to medical sociology, and certainly does deliver. Its nineteen chapters cover topics ranging from the Doctor-Patient Relationship, through Health and Healthcare of Ethnic Minority Groups, to Organizing and Funding Health Care. Each one is meticulously referenced, covering both current journals and classic sociological texts. Important theories and studies are summarised, saving busy medical students the chore of trawling through the daunting original papers, and every paragraph is highly relevant. This is the ideal stand-alone companion to most current courses of medical sociology.

Good points:
+ *Very* well written - the authors are very litterate in explaining a topic that needs to be explained carefully in order not to be misunderstood.
Bad points:
- Can drag in places.
I recommend this book as well as the subject to anyone studying medicine. I found some things a real eye-opener - it really is applied sociology rather than theory, which I will use in my future career as a doctor.

A very readable and concise account. It covers all the relevant issues in the undergraduate medical course. This book takes the stress out of studying sociology in the medicine course as it does not overcomplicate anything. A great book and a great buy, I strongly recommend this for any one studying sociology as part of their course.

Last week I bought a used copy of this book, because I'm starting Medicine at uni and the 2008 edition featured on my reading list. I only realised when I received the book today in the post that this is a completely different book, from a different publisher and written by different authors, just with the same name. Amazon has combined two books on this page, so if you're looking for the Saunders version, I repeat DO NOT buy the hardcover version. Its from 1986 and useless to me :(
