Health and Society in Twentieth-century Britain, Paperback

Health and Society in Twentieth-century Britain Paperback

Part of the Themes in British Social History series

Description

Few things tell us more of a nation's general well-being than the development of the life-expectancy of its citizens; the rising standards of health that they come to demand; and how evenly that improvement is shared throughout society.

Helen Jones examines the record of twentieth-century Britain in these respects.

She has much heartening progress to record - yet stark inequalities remain.

Her book is thus both a review of, and contribution to, the current debates over gender, class and ethnic inequalities in standards of health in Britain today.
