Críticas:

This is a fascinating sociological and political view of the structure of the food and health industries in the modern world and how they are responsible for the epidemic we are seeing of obesity and its associated diseases. (Occupational Medicine)

Stuckler and Siegel's book expertly pulls together the essential data and ideas needed to combat chronic diseases. It will be a mandatory reader for courses in global health. (Professor Shah Ebrahim, London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, UK)

From health system financing to the financialization of the global economy, there is scarcely a dimension of our chronic disease pandemic that this book leaves unexplored. There is no better or more timely a text than this one from which to take that step. (Professor Ronald Labonté, Institute of Population Health, University of Ottawa, Canada)

This is a powerful, important and ultimately subversive book. It situates the origins and response to the global epidemic of chronic (noncommunicable) diseases as issues of social justice. This book is a must- read for all engaged with chronic diseases, especially, for people not yet engaged whether they be health professionals, development experts or concerned citizens. (Professor Robert Beaglehole, University of Auckland, New Zealand)

Sick Societies is a highly ambitious and accessible book that succeeds in bringing together key material to make the case for accelerated action to address the global chronic disease epidemic. I would highly recommend it to anyone with an interest in chronic disease, and as a key text for courses in global health and public health. (International Journal Of Epidemiology)

With one out of every three deaths in the world now being caused by four types of chronic disease-heart disease, respiratory disease, common cancers, and type 2 diabetes-what path should public health practitioners take to stem the rising human and financial cost of non-communicable diseases? David Stuckler and Karen Siegel have edited a new data-driven tome that addresses this question better than any text I've seen to date-providing essential reading both for epidemiologists and public health campaigners looking for data and guidance in their movements for healthier foods, cleaner air, and access to essential medicines and primary care medical homes. (EpiAnalysis)

Reseña del editor:

Chronic diseases-heart disease, diabetes, lung disease, and common cancers-claim more than one out of every two lives worldwide. Within the next few decades their toll will rise, most greatly in developing countries. Yet this rapid growth of chronic diseases is not being met with a proportionate global response. Left unaddressed, they pose a major threat to social and economic development.
This book is the first to synthesize the growing evidence-base surrounding chronic disease, comprehensively addressing the prevention and control of chronic diseases from epidemiologic, economic, prevention/management, and political economy perspectives.
Sick Societies is written in five main parts. The first three chapters explore the causes and consequences of chronic diseases on a global level. Chapter four identifi es different approaches to preventing and managing chronic diseases, while chapters five and six consider the power and politics in global health that have stymied an effective response to chronic disease. In chapter seven, the themes from the first three parts come into focus through a series of invited contributions from leading public health experts. The final chapter sets out a model of pragmatic and imaginative solidarity, wherein the struggles of the rich and poor to survive are united by a common cause and shared goals.
