Description

The first edition of Health Promotion in Canada, published in the mid-1990s, had a huge impact in Canada as well as at a global an international level. In a book review for The Institute for Health Promotion Research, University of British Columbia's Jim Frankish emphasized, "By providing an understanding of the roots and evolution of Canadian health promotion, the editors also provide a potential roadmap for its future."
Thoroughly updated and meticulously revised, this second edition promises to do the same. Masterfully edited and thematically divided into six key parts - conceptual, national, provincial, international, practical perspectives, and concluding thoughts - this contributed volume provides a comprehensive profile of the history and evolution of health promotion in Canada. Adopting a critical/sociological and historical perspective, this book offers case studies from each region of Canada and examines what the future holds for health promotion worldwide. The text brilliantly captures the fact that Canada has been a pioneer in the field of health promotion practice, policy, and research.
