This book is rich in both sociological analysis and in practical analyses. It highlights the social, cultural, and political factors that portray that some social groups experience disabilities more often than others. It also highlights the barriers that particular groups face in trying to address their medical needs. These difficulties can range from problems with insurance to language problems in dealing with health professionals, or even sexism in medicine. The book also contains many suggestions for reforming health care practices and policies to improve service delivery. (source: Nielsen Book Data)
