About this product
- DescriptionThis invative book investigates the roots of contemporary experiences of stigma, throwing new light on the phemen by examining a variety of long-term conditions. Behaviour, lifestyle and identity are longer the results of mass-production by social class and nation, but increasingly the quirky and unique eccentricities of the individual as consumer, reflexive citizen and free agent. But if the hallmark of the post-modern world is endless variety and unlimited sub-cultural freedom, should we t be witnessing The End of Stigma ? The book takes Fukuyama's tion of The End of History and examines contemporary challenges to the stigma associated with chronic illness. Award-winning author Gill Green examines cases of HIV, mental illness and substance misuse, to provide new insights into stigma in health. She demonstrates that people with long-term conditions refuse to be defined by their condition and highlights their increasingly powerful voice. The End of Stigma? will be of interest to a wide range of students and health professionals in medical sociology, health studies and social care.
