Summary
Global Perspectives on Social Capital and Health Ichiro Kawachi, Soshi Takao, and S.V. Subramanian, editors The idea of social capital emerged in the social science disciplines to explain puzzling phenomena such as why some communities fare better in crisis than others. As the field matures, it has been adapted to wide-ranging issues such as population health. Global Perspectives on Social Capital and Health presents the major research issues as well as nuanced theoretical discussion in keeping with an evolving field in Europe, Asia, and the U.S. Background chapters analyze how social capital manifests in neighborhoods, workplaces, and schools, and its relationship to health. The book's second half offers guidelines for improving population health at the social capital level, and examples of interventions, such as microfinance programs, in which enhanced social capital and health benefits are a significant by-product. And a number of contributors debate the problems of defining the concept--and using the term at all. Included in the coverage: Contextual determinants of community social capital Causal inference in social capital research Advancing social capital interventions from a network and population health perspective The social capital of welfare states and its significance for population health Social capital interventions to promote healthy aging Social capital, social policy, and health disparities: a legacy of political advocacy in African-American communities Because of its diverse scope, Global Perspectives on Social Capital and Health will attract a wide audience among researchers and graduate students in public health, epidemiology, medical sociology, and economics
