Public Health : Local and Global Perspectives Paperback / softback

Edited by Pranee (University of Western Sydney) Liamputtong


This book provides students with a comprehensive overview of Australian and international public health issues and contexts.

It explores recent changes in the local public health field, as well as complex global public health issues, and engages with the political and cultural impacts these have on public health systems.

The book aims to deepen students' understanding of the determinants of health, historical and theoretical perspectives of public health, and current health research.

Through consideration of new perspectives, it introduces the latest public health discourses and explores issues of health promotion and health inequalities that inform much of the understanding of public health today.

Drawing on more than 25 years' experience, Pranee Liamputtong leads a stellar author team to present this essential resource.

Each chapter includes learning objectives, key words, tutorial exercises and further reading, as well as illustrative and informative case studies to aid students' understanding of key concepts.
