Glenn Laverack (2013) Health activism: Foundations and strategies, London: Sage Publications, pp. 175, ISBN: 978-1-4462-4964-2.
As a long-time public health activist I was pleased to see Laverack’s new book focussing
on health activism. To date, there have been only a handful of texts available suitable
for tertiary students, the most notable being Cwikel’s (2006) substantial work. The
bulk of health activist texts consist of speciality texts about women’s health, HIV/AIDS
activism and the ongoing fight against big tobacco. Laverack’s text serves its purpose in
addressing a gap in the market for a generic introduction to public health activism.
