This monograph presents a detailed overview of sociologically relevant research and writing on health, illness, the medical and nursing professions, the socialization of physicians, the hospital, medical science and research, and bioethics. It also draws on the author's four decades as a participant observer on the U.S. medical scene, and her comparative observations in Europe, central Africa, and China.
