Summary

Originally presented as papers in the 1991 British Sociological Association Conference on Health and Society, Locating Health represents a valuable addition to the ‘health inequalities’ debate by extending our gaze beyond the traditional locations to include place, consumption and lifestyle. It offers reconceptualization of key theoretical terms, including work, income, and public/private domains as well as addressing the reciprocal influence of health and social location, for example early retirement; and highlighting the health consequences of multiple locations, such as gender and class, gender and age.
