About the Author

Mel Bartley is Professor Emerita of Medical Sociology at University College London


"The new edition of Mel Bartley's excellent, well-written book should be relevant to anyone interested in understanding and addressing the persisting challenge of social inequalities in health. Congratulations on an inspiring, timely and critical contribution!" Johannes Siegrist, Heinrich-Heine University Dusseldorf "This new edition of Mel Bartley's classic book has the authoritative heft of one of the western world's most respected medical sociologists. Her great personal depth of expertise comes across throughout the volume, and the book demonstrates a tight grasp of the conceptual and social theory issues that should underpin high-quality research into health inequalities. The book's newly updated national and international data on health inequalities are especially welcome." John Frank, University of Edinburgh
