This book explores social factors such as culture, mass media, political systems, and migration that influence public health while systematically considering how we may best study these factors and use our knowledge from this study to guide public health interventions. Throughout, contributors emphasize the potential of population strategies to influence traditional risk factors associated with health and disease. Each section ends with Galea's integrative chapters, bringing the observations and conclusions from the chapters into clear, usable focus.

"... this ambitious new volume edited by Professor Sandro Galea certainly aims to expand the set by discussing macrosocial determinants of health and the benefits, if not necessity, of their inclusion in epidemiologic analyses. ... There is much to recommend in this text. ... Galea's new text certainly represents such an advance and portends a substantial step in a useful direction." - J. Michael Oakes, American Journal of Epidemiology, University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, MN
