From the Back Cover:

As advancements in technology make it possible to screen for an increasing number of medical conditions, this key strategy of preventive medicine raises fundamental issues for sociological inquiry. This has provoked a need for a cohesive and well-developed sociology of medical screening. The Sociology of Medical Screening: Critical Perspectives, New Directions presents an authoritative and up-to-date overview of the diverse sociological issues relating to population-based medical screening. The Editors' introductory chapter identifies the salient sociological questions pertinent to medical screening, reflects on the sociology of screening to date and sociology's potential contribution to wider debates about screening, and finally presents possible future research directions. The next chapter presents a genealogy of screening and serves as an interesting accompaniment. Subsequent chapters present a collection of exciting new works that examine and demonstrate current sociological concerns from a variety of theoretical and methodological approaches. The Sociology of Medical Screening offers timely and important insights into the complex and myriad social implications of screening in the modern age.
