Summary

"Health, Social Change & Communities is an authoritative and up-to-date analysis of the effects that political and economic changes have had on health and social policy in Australia. Written by Australias foremost academics and researchers of policy and social reform, the book focuses on a range of health and social issues found within diverse communities. This book is unique in providing a reformist approach to the policies concerning community groups. Its extensive coverage of new and controversial issues is examined in relation to the impact that changes to government health policy have on specific local communities." -- BOOK JACKET.
