Reviews

'Students, researchers and policymakers interested in public health ethics should engage with this insightful and stimulating, if very demanding, thesis. It forces the reader to think about 'the bigger picture' and challenges taken for granted assumptions about the nature and parameters of public health.' H. Fairbrother, Public Health
'... Coggon's achievement is substantial. What Makes Health Public? provides a carefully argued examination of the normative bases for public health policies.' Wendy E. Parmet, Medical Law Review
