The study of subjective experiences of health and illness can also provide a challenge to traditional objective medical knowledge and, given current healthcare interest in user involvement, can highlight the need for change in health service provision.This book explores the interplay between identity and health, private and public, mind and body.

Drawing on new material, and using and exploring innovative biographical and narrative methods, it covers a broad range of identities in relation to health and illness, including race, religion, ethnicity, disability, age, body image, sexuality and gender.Identity and Health will be of great interest to academics, researchers and students of sociology, medical anthropology, health and psychology.
