Medical power and social knowledge by Bryan S Turner ( Book )
23 editions published between 1987 and 2007 in English and held by 725 libraries worldwide
The fully revised edition of this successful textbook provides a comprehensive introduction to medical sociology and an assessment of its significance for social theory and the social sciences. Bryan Turner considers the ways in which different social theorists have interpreted the experience of health and disease, and the social relations and power structures involved in medical practice. He examines health as an aspect of social action, and looks at the problem of health at three levels - the individual, the social and the societal. Among the perspectives analysed are Parsons' view of the 'sick role' and the patient's relation to society; Foucault's critique of medical models of madness and sexuality; Marxist and feminist debates on the relation of health and medicine to capitalism and patriarchy; and the contribution of Beck to the sociological understanding of environmental pollution and hazard in the politics of health.

Orientalism, postmodernism, and globalism by Bryan S Turner ( Book )
16 editions published between 1994 and 2006 in English and held by 493 libraries worldwide
In this challenging study of contemporary social theory, Bryan Turner examines the recent debate about orientalism in relation to postmodernism and the process of globalization. He provides a profound critique of many of the leading figures in classical orientalism. His book also considers the impact of globalization on Islam, the nature of oriental studies and decolonization, and the notion of 'the world' in sociological theory. These cultural changes and social debates also reflect important changes in the status and position of intellectuals in modern culture who are threatened, not only by the levelling of mass culture, but also by the new opportunities posed by postmodernism. He takes a critical view of the role of sociology in these developments and raises important questions about the global role of English intellectuals as a social stratum.
