Publisher's Summary

Brought to you by Penguin. 

A doctor and an economist explore the hidden links between health and structural injustices, and set out a radical vision for a fairer world.

Inflamed journeys across the human body - through our digestive, endocrine, circulatory, respiratory, reproductive, immune and nervous systems - illuminating the hidden relationships between our biological systems and the profound injustices of our political and economic systems. This boldly original book shows how inflammation is connected not just to the food that we eat and the air that we breathe, but is also linked to the traumatic events we experience, the stories we tell, and the arts of diagnosis that physicians practice - and fail to practice - every day.

Combining the latest scholarship on globalisation and biology with the stories of patients in marginalised communities and the science of Indigenous groups, Inflamed points the way toward a deep medicine that has the potential to heal not only our bodies but the world.

An essential read

Absolutely amazing read. It is informative, shocking and intensely detailed. I would 100% recommend to ANYONE, but especially Health care workers and sociologists.

Very educational

This book offered a throughly researched perspective into the history of illness and healing; from deep medicine to modern medicine. It gave good insight into the injustices of colonisation and global capitalisation. I enjoyed learning from the two very educated authors.
