Summary
Heart disease, the leading cause of death in the United States, affects people from all walks of life, yet who lives and who dies from heart disease still depends on race, class, and gender. While scientists and clinicians understand and treat heart disease more effectively than ever before, and industrialized countries have made substantial investments in research and treatment over the past six decades, patterns of inequality persist. In Heart-Sick, Janet K. Shim argues that official accounts of cardiovascular health inequalities are unconvincing and inadequate, and that clincial and public health interventions grounded in these accounts ignore many critical causes of those inequalities. Shim demonstrates that these sites of expert knowledge routinely, yet often invisibly, make claims about how biological and cultural differences matter - claims that differ substantially from the lived experiences of individuals who themselves suffer from health problems. -- from back cover
