Book review

This collection of papers, presented at the 1991 British Sociological Association Conference on "Health and Society", adds to the "health inequalities" debate by going beyond the traditional locations, to include place, consumption and lifestyle. The text offers reconceptualizations of key theoretical terms - such as work, public/private, race, income - and addresses the reciprocal influence of health and social location - early retirement, for example, and highlights the health consequences of multiple locations - gender and class, gender and age. This text should be of interest given the evidence of widening health inequalities, recent renewed government interest in poverty and child mortality, the emergence of new types of social divisions, and the continuing public health/planning interest in matching resources to "needs".
