Gender, Race, Class and Health Summary

Gender, Race, Class and Health: Intersectional Approaches by Amy J. Schulz

"Gender, Race, Class, and Health" examines relationships between economic structures, race, culture, and gender, and their combined influence on health. The authors systematically apply social and behavioral science to inspect how these dimensions intersect to influence health and health care in the United States. This examination brings into sharp focus the potential for influencing policy to improve health through a more complete understanding of the structural nature of race, gender, and class disparities in health. As useful as it is readable, this book is ideal for students and professionals in public health, sociology, anthropology, and women's studies.
