Summary
  • "In this study, Yukiko Asada seeks to describe the role that morality and theories of justice play in health inequality research, and to articulate the moral philosophy underlying this field of Inquiry. Composed of two distinct parts, Health Inequality first proposes a framework for measuring health inequality that reflects moral concerns. The book then goes on to show how this framework can be applied to quantitative study. Using a case study approach, Asada analyses whether or not health equity improved in the United States between 1990 and 1995"--Jacket
  • A unique blend of philosophy and quantitative research, Health Inequality will prove a valuable tool for academics and policymakers alike
