 About the Book 

This collection of essays examines the interrelations between illness, disability, health, society, and culture. The contributors examine how narratives have emerged and been utilized within these areas to help those who have experienced d injury, disability, dementia, pain, grief, or psychological trauma to express their stories. Encompassing clinical case studies, ethnographic field studies and autobiographical case studies, Health, Illness and Culture offers a broad overview and critical analysis of the present state of illness narratives within the fields of health and social welfare.
