As they did in their earlier edited volume, The Sociology of the Health Service (Routledge, 1991), Gabe (sociology, U. of London, UK) and Calnan (medical sociology, U. of Kent, UK) present a collection of articles intended to demonstrate the value of turning a sociological lens on the issues facing the health services in Britain. Topics addressed in the 11 presented chapters include changing forms of managerialism in the National Health Service; stratification of primary care; New Labour and privatization of the NHS; the relationship between the pharmaceutical industry, the state, and the NHS; the role of evidence-based practice in UK health policy; the normalization of telemedicine; health care, consumerism, and the politics of identity; and "non-orthodox" medicine in an "orthodox" health service.
