Health and Well-Being: A Social and Cultural Perspective $210.00
Authors: Quynh Lę (University of Tasmania, Australia) 
Book Description:
One of the most essential aspects in life for anyone in any society is health and well-being. It is the indispensable base on which happiness is based. This book examines these two important aspects of life. It focuses on the social and cultural aspects of health and well-being in current societies and cultures. Traditionally, health research has placed a greater emphasis on physical and clinical aspects such as diseases, medical treatments and rehabilitation. With an increasing interest in population health, particularly in the current context of globalization, the sphere of health research has been expanded to also cover social and cultural factors which not only affect health conditions of individuals and communities but can also be determining health factors in some respects.
