The New Public Health

The New Public Health
Discourses, Knowledges, Strategies

First Edition

December 1996 | 192 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd
Petersen and Lupton focus critically on the new public health, assessing its implications for the concepts of self, embodiment and citizenship. They argue that the new public health is used as a source of moral regulation and for distinguishing between self and other. They also explore the implications of modernist belief in the power of science and the ability of experts to solve problems through rational administrative means that underpin the strategies and rhetoric of the new public health.
