Work, worklessness, and the political economy of health /

by Bambra, Clare.

Publisher: Oxford, U.K. Oxford University Press 2011Description: xvii, 242 p. : ill.Notes: Includes bibliographical references and index Contents: 1.Introduction -- 2.Welfare state capitalism and health -- 3.Health hazards in the physical work environment -- 4.The psychosocial work environment and risks to health -- 5.Recession, unemployment, and health -- 6.Health related worklessness -- 7.Work, health, and welfare interventions -- 8.Conclusion.Summary: We are told that 'work is good for us' and that ill health is caused by 'individual lifestyles'. Drawing on research from public health, social policy, epidemiology, geography and political science, this evidence-based inter-disciplinary book firmly challenges these contemporary orthodoxies. It systematically demonstrates that work - or lack of it - is central to our health and wellbeing and is the underlying determinant of health inequalities. Work is the cornerstone of modern society and dominates adult life with around a third of our time spent working. It is a vital part of self-identity and for most of us it is the foundation of economic and social status. As such, the material and psychosocial conditions in which we work have immense consequences for our physical and mental wellbeing, as well as the distribution of health across the population. Recessions, job-loss, insecurity and unemployment also have important ramifications for the health and wellbeing of individuals, families and communities. Chronic illness is itself a significant cause of worklessness and low pay.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).
