"This superb book is the best work yet concerning the relationships between public health and social justice."
—Howard Waitzkin, MD, PhD, Distinguished Professor Emeritus, University of New Mexico

"This book gives public health professionals, researchers and advocates the essential knowledge they need to capture the energy that social justice brings to our enterprise."
—Nicholas Freudenberg, DrPH, Distinguished Professor of Public Health, the City University of New York School of Public Health at Hunter College

"The breadth of topics selected provides a strong overview of social justice in medicine and public health for readers new to the topic."
—William Wiist, DHSc, MPH, MS, senior scientist and head, Office of Health and Society Studies, Interdisciplinary Health Policy Institute, Northern Arizona University

"This book is a tremendous contribution to the literature of social justice and public health."
