Vital bodies : Living with illness Paperback / softback


Based on ethnographic research conducted over a year, this book tells the story of twelve people, each living with illness.

Focusing on everyday life, it explores ideas of care, vulnerability and choice.

Juxtaposing academic text with rich descriptions and vivid illustrations, the book highlights the sensory and emotional intimacies of visual sociology and demonstrates the use and value of sensuous scholarship.
