“The considerable and extraordinary breadth and scope of this collection tackles head on some of the most critical public health and social issues of our times. This groundbreaking book advocates for human rights and dignity for all…and leaves readers with a sense of optimism and hope that through knowledge, empowerment, and increased awareness change is possible.” —C.L. McLean, Publisher, Editor, International Journal of the Creative Arts in Interdisciplinary Practice “A great book….should become a much-needed classic.” —Sherman Mellinkoff, MD, Dean Emeritus, UCLA School of Medicine “Donohoe’s Public Health and Social Justice sparks an essential cultural conversation by pulling together an array of peer-reviewed articles, newspaper articles, and personal essays from multidisciplinary contributors who thoughtfully examine the complexity of modern health and social challenges, articulate the problems, and explore (and incite) potential solutions.” —Health and Human Rights “This is a well-organised, easy-to-read book that provides many facts, insights and examples of abuses of social justice and human rights in the context of public health and, importantly, gives lots of ideas for action. It is, in fact, a call to arms to public health professionals.” — Australian and New Zealand Journal of Public Health
