Using theory to explore health, medicine, and society



Peter (sociology, Glasgow Caledonian U.) and Carole Ann (Open U., Scotland) assess the expanding influence of medicine into popular social issues such as obesity, binge drinking, happiness, and therapy. They also discuss how sociological theory and concepts play their part in producing or representing the dynamics of medicalization. Among their topics are medicine in modernity as a critical political economy, the happiness and self-help industry, medicine in a risk society, moral panic and binge drinking, and contesting paradigms in the medicalization of obesity.
