  • Our first preface in 1993 emphasized that this book was A, not, The Sociology of Mental Health and Illness. Today, more than ever, it is quite a risk to write ‘The Sociology’ of anything. Moreover, as the wide-ranging references listed at the end of the book indicate, we continue to draw our material from sociology but also many other sources, including psychology and psychiatry. Sociological analyses of our topic are not offered only by sociologists.

  • Having worked in and traveled to many countries, most recently as the Ambassador and Permanent Representative of Thailand to the United Nations, I have seen people in different societies react to trauma in various ways. While experts contributed to this important book, Trauma Psychology: Issues in Violence, Disaster, Health, and Illness, I share my perspectives from serving the people of Thailand and other nations and from my experiences in the aftermath of the 2004 tsunami that struck the cities and towns in the Indian Ocean rim, including Thailand.

  • We are living through a period of striking, gender-related social change in the West as traditional distinctions between the experiences of women and men are breaking down and being reconfigured in new, more complex ways. This has significant, but as yet largely unexplored, implications for health and illness. The long-established life expectancy gap between men and women appears to be closing in many affluent societies as men begin to ‘catch up’ with women.

  • We do the research that identifies causes of disease and disability. We advocate for solutions. We consult with policymakers and provide them with the evidence they need to make change. We roll our sleeves up and get to work in communities by influencing policies, identifying trends, implementing solutions, and increasing healthy behavior. Our work happens on a molecular level, and on a population-wide level. Microbiologists work to find a vaccine for malaria, while behavioral scientists research ways to discourage populations from smoking.

Children in Mexico are more likely to die from leukemia (and other types of cancer) than are children in Canada and the United States.

  • The aim of this book is to bring together the field of media studies with that of the sociology of health and illness (SHI). As a sociologist concerned with health matters, becoming interested a few years ago in media representations of illness and health-care topics, I noticed early on in my studies that SHI had not kept up with developments in media studies.

  • In developing countries, a mother’s death in childbirth means that her newborn will almost certainly die and that her older children are more likely to suffer from disease.Moreover, when mothers are malnourished, ill, or receive inade- quate care, their newborns face a higher risk of disease and premature death. 9 Almost one-quar- ter of newborns in developing countries are born low birth weight, largely due to their mothers’ poor health and nutritional status, which results in increased vulnerability to infection and a high- er risk of developmental problems.

  • Psychiatrists and diverse other mental health and broader healthcare professionals are faced with many challenges in effectively evaluating and treating persons with psychiatric illnesses and substance use disorders.

Nursing theories, regardless of complexity or abstraction, reflect nursing and are used by nurses to frame their thinking, action, and being in the world. As guides for nursing endeavors, nursing theories are practical in nature and facilitate communication with those being nursed as well as with colleagues, students, and persons practicing in related health and illness services.

  • Health concerns coloured the reproductive intentions of most of the women and some of the men. Many HIV-infected women and men were firm in their desire not to have children. Both women and men feared infecting a partner or their baby and were anxious about leaving either living or future children as orphans. Women and men were concerned about their ability to financially support their children, given their illness. Women who had given birth to an infected child expressed mixed feelings about becoming pregnant again.

  • Higgs, the central character of Samuel Butler’s Erewhon, finds himself in a country where criminality is regarded as a sign of ill-health, and illness as deserving of moral opprobrium. He attends the trial of a man charged with pulmonary consumption. The man’s incessant coughing counts against him, as does his previous conviction for aggravated bronchitis; he is convicted and sentenced to a lifetime of hard labour (Butler 1872, pp.95–101). At the end of the book Higgs, facing prosecution for catching measles, is forced to flee....
