Tipping Points : Modelling Social Problems and Health Hardback
Edited by Brian Straughan, Sarah Curtis, John Bissell, Camila Caiado, Michael Goldstein
Part of the Wiley Series in Computational and Quantitative Social Science series
This book focuses on the modelling of contemporary health and social problems, especially those considered a major burden to communities, governments and taxpayers, such as smoking, alcoholism, drug use, and heart disease.
Based on a series of papers presented at a recent conference hosted by the Leverhulme-funded Tipping Points project at the University of Durham, this book illustrates a broad range of modelling approaches.
Such a diverse collection demonstrates that an interdisciplinary approach is essential to modelling tipping points in health and social problems, and the assessment of associated risk and resilience.
