A guiding principle of the book is the importance of social context and cultural construction in the analysis of health problems. It addresses the multiple layers of influence on health, enlarging the dominant risk factor approach to health behavior by giving sufficient attention to the social environmentThe book draws from many disciplines (sociology, anthropology, social psychology, demography, gerontology, economics, and history), and uses examples and case studies specifically from the forefront of public health.
