This textbook in the Illustrated Colour Text series offers an integrated treatment of sociology and psychology for medical students. It is presented in a much more colourful and graphic format than is usual for books on these two subjects. This integration reflects the tendency to teach these two subjects together as “behavioural science”, with an increased stress on the place of medicine in society, and on illness as a product of psychological and social circumstances rather than merely a biological phenomenon. The book reflects these trends and has been successful and popular with students.

    ***2010 BMA Book Awards - Highly Commended -  Health and social care category***
    “This is an engaging, thorough and very important subject presentation that every medical practitioner should read and refer to if working with students. A pleasure to read and a joy to behold: it may be strongly recommended. Thank you for giving me the chance to read and think about this splendid text.” Judges comments
