Abstract:
Explores various forms of violence in health care settings. Using a broad range of critical approaches in the field of anthropology, cultural studies, gender studies, political philosophy and sociology, it examines violence following three definite yet interrelated streams: institutional and managerial violence against health care workers or patients; horizontal violence amongst health care providers and finally, patients' violence towards health care providers.

Drawing together the latest research from Australia, Canada, the UK, and the US, this book engages with the work of critical theorists, to address the issue of violence and theorise its workings in creative and controversial ways.
