The health professions are facing major changes in the international arena and are being compelled to re-examine their organizational and skill base to sustain their services to sponsors and clients. "Health Professions and the State in Europe" explores key issues relating to these challenges and to the relationship between health care and the state in a range of differing national contexts across the shifting socio-political map of Europe. The editors and contributors address central questions involved in understanding both the history and recent patterns of change and the radical dilemmas and new opportunities facing the health professions to present a complete overview of the current situation. "Health Professions and the State in Europe" is applicable to a wide range of national contexts and a number of health professions - from nursing to midwifery to medicine - and should be of interest to all students, lecturers and professionals in health policy, social policy and medical sociology. Terry Johnson has also published "Professions and Power" (Macmillan 1972) and "Foucault's New Domains" (Routledge, 1993).
Gerry Larkin has published "Occupational Monopoly and Modern Medicine" (Tavistock, 1983), and Mike Saks has published "Alternative Medicine in Britain".
