The concept of risk is one of the most suggestive terms for evoking the cultural character of our times and for defining the purpose of social research. Risk attitudes and behaviours are understood to comprise the dominant experience of culture, politics and society in our times.Health, Risk and Vulnerability investigates the personal and political dimensions of health risk that structure everyday thought and action. In this innovative book, international contributors reflect upon the meaning and significance of risk across a broad range of social and institutional contexts, exploring current issues such as:the 'escalation of the medicalization of life', involving the pathologization of normality and blurring of the divide between clinical and preventive medicinethe tendency for mental health service users to be regarded as representing a risk to others rather than being 'at risk' and vulnerable themselvesthe development of health care systems to identify risk and prevent harmwomen's reactions to 'high risk' screening results during pregnancy and how they communicate with other women about riskmen and the use the internet to reconstruct their social and sexual identitiesCharting new terrain in the sociology of health and risk, and focusing on the connections between them, Health, Risk and Vulnerability offers new perspectives on an important field of contemporary debate and provides an invaluable resource for students, teachers, researchers, and policy makers.
