About the series
The Sociology of Health and Illness Monograph series provides a sociological perspective on the theory of medical knowledge, the practice of medical work, and the experience of receiving or giving medical and health care. Published annually, they aim to identify and contribute to new areas of debate and research in the discipline and each book is devoted to an important topic of current interest.

Review Articles provide a state-of-the-art overview of the literature and valuable summaries of key areas of work for both teaching and research purposes. These reviews may summarize and critique an established area of work; identify and develop the direction of an emerging area of research; or apply existing sociological theory and research to the analysis of an issue that is generating widespread public debate. Review articles should evaluate the progress of research in clarifying a sociological problem and recommend potential fruitful avenues for further empirical, methodological, and/ or theoretical work. Normal criteria of quality, word length and style will be applied as for reviewing any submission. Davina Allen is the main contact for correspondence regarding review articles (email: Allenda@cf.ac.uk).
