"This book is an excellent contribution to our understanding of the extraordinarily complex relationship between globalization and health/illness as well as the positive and negative implications of this relationship. It also provides a most useful source of bibliographical materials on the subject."
Mark Field, Harvard University

Jennie Kronenfeld, Arizona State University

"This is an easy to read general introduction to the complex relationship between globalization and health. It is up to date and coversmany issues currently under debate in health policy and health care organization."
Fred Stevens, Maastricht University

From the Inside Flap

This accessible book examines the multidimensional influence of globalization on human health and disease. The acceleration of globalization since the end of the Cold War has had numerous far–reaching impacts on health–related issues, both social and political, and as this book shows, globalization continues to present both positive and negative implications for the state of human health.

Geoffrey and William Cockerham focus on the relationships between globalization and a variety of health–related topics including the spread of Western medicine, the rise of medical tourism, and adverse effects on the environment. Particular attention is paid to issues of contemporary urgency such as the spread of pandemics and the role of global health governance. The book provides a readable account of the many actors involved in global health, analyzing the interactions of national governments, governmental and nongovernmental organizations, and multinational corporations in addressing global health issues.

Health and Globalization will be illuminating reading for students on a wide range of courses including public health, globalization, the sociology of medicine, and development.
