The intended aims of the book are to provide the ‘building blocks’ which have animated the emergent field of medical sociology over the last 30 years. It comprises a cluster of short essays by established scholars within the discipline and forms part of the SAGE Key Concepts series. The book begins with a concise introduction to medical sociology and its development, followed by 50 short essays. Each essay begins with a working definition and proceeds to discuss the origins of the concept or issue; its development over time, with reference to European and American scholarship, where appropriate; the significance of the concepts; and finally, ends with useful cross‐references to other essays within the book. The latter points the reader to conceptual links within the discipline which is central to acquiring a broad and detailed understanding of the terrain covered by medical sociology.
