This reader documents the growing debate about health and wellbeing. Some 'new voices' speak from neglected lay experiences and values; others are challenging medical perspectives 'from within'. Competing perspectives on health beseige familiar areas of everyday life: our bodies, the home and workplace. Health goals are increasingly debated on wider agendas in social planning: in the marketing of lifestyles, in transport policies, and in the appraisal of alternative futures. But prospects for health are bound up with social equity, international justice, and global sustainability - as well as with the 'journey of hope' of the individuals who struggle to survive. 'The strength of the selection lies in its deliberate attempt to include new voices in the debate...There is no didactic theme which links the pieces: the range is intentionally and successfully provocative...an excellent source book for many tutors. Others working in health who enjoy shaking up their ideas should beg, borrow or buy a copy.' - Health Service Journal
