Social Determinants of Health

Second Edition

Edited by Michael Marmot and Richard G. Wilkinson

This book provides what is at once the most authoritative and readable overview of what research tells us about how different areas of public policy affect the health of the population. Arranged in chapters covering policy areas ranging from work and transport to food policy and sexual behavior, it shows how health is affected by the lives we lead and what policy makers can do about it.
