The other chapters were several empirical studies applying the concept of biomedicalization in their researches. They were really fun to read and I really enjoyed the [...]


    2. This book is like a brick-a dozen or so papers assembled by Adele Clarke and her old sociology reading group to explain and describe biomedicalization as a tool for theoretical critique. As a positive, if I were teaching a graduate seminar on the topic I might just assign this book.
