              Disclosure in Health and Illness
               

              Disclosure in Health and Illness (Hardback)

              Edited by Davis, Mark; Manderson, Lenore

              Disclosure is a frequently used, but rarely interrogated concept in health and social welfare. Abuse, disability, sexuality and health status can be 'disclosed' to peers and professionals, and on some occasions, disclosure is a requirement and not a choice. This innovative collec...tion examines the new social and political implications of disclosure practices in health and social care. Disclosure is an organising principle of bioethics, an institutional obligation, and a personal practice. We make our identities and our connections with others by sharing life stories, experiences and innermost desires. The increased rationalisation of education, work and law, to name a few, means that more often we are asked to disclose facts about our lives, bodies and minds, at times with unintended consequences. Yet how and what, why and when people 'disclose' - and perceive, question and expose - and in what ways, has rarely received critical analytic attention. The contributors take up these problems by foregrounding the many shades of disclosure: from the secret, through the telling of diagnosis, to the more prosaic sharing of narratives from everyday life. The processes and implications of disclosing are addressed in areas such as: illness trajectories and end-of-life decisions, ethical research practices, medical procedures, and interpersonal relationships. Exploring the idea of disclosure as a moral imperative and a social act, this book uses an international range of empirical case studies, social theory and methodological insight to show how dominant and normative understandings of social relationships and their obligations shape our understanding of acts of disclosure, enquiry and exposure. It will be of interest to students and academics with an interest in narrative studies, medical anthropology, bioethics, health psychology, health studies and the sociology of illness.

              International health planners often design programmes based on the assumption that recipient nations share the same level playing field with regard to conceptions of health, illness and at-risk populations. This volume analyzes why humanitarian projects fail to recognize ethnic i...dentities.

              Technologies of Sexuality, Identity and Sexual Health highlights the complex ways in which sexuality is expressed and enacted through local ideologies, global identities and material cultures, and their influence on people's sexual health and well-being. Its impetus is the renewe...d interest in technology and the `social life of things,' including pharmaceuticals, expanded sexual and related surgery, the growing exploitation of markets for sexual and contraceptive products, and the impact of these on sexual and health practices and outcomes. Organised loosely into three parts, the opening chapters concentrate on female contraception, its availability, and the varied cultural significance attached to the ability to control its use, exploring the politics of reproductive health and birth control, and the ties between technology and power. The middle section turns its attention to men, and the impact of traditional and contemporary concerns about masculinity, and the social and sexual roles of men. The final chapters look at the commonalities across cultural borders and sexual gendered identities - how products and procedures travel, not only through the formal channels of globalisation, but also informally, carried by individuals across cultural and social boundaries through sexual, social and commercial interactions. The volume brings together anthropologists, sociologists and cultural studies scholars, both senior and emerging, from around the globe. Offering an important and topical contribution to the developing global literature on sexuality, sexual identity, culture and health, it is of interest to researchers and advanced students in these areas.
