Health Promotion in Canada, 3rd Edition
Critical Perspectives on Practice
Edited by Irving Rootman, Sophie Dupéré, Ann Pederson, Michel O'Neill
Health Promotion in Canada is a comprehensive profile of the history and future of health promotion in Canada. Now in its third edition, it maintains the critical, sociological, and historical perspective of the previous two editions and adds a greater focus on health promotion practice.
Thoroughly updated and reorganized, the book now contains 18 chapters by prominent academics, researchers, and practitioners. The authors cover a broad range of topics, including key theories and concepts in health promotion; ecological approaches; Aboriginal approaches; health inequalities; reflexive practice; ethics; issues, populations, and settings as entry points for intervention; and the Canadian health promotion experience in a global context. Each chapter concludes with thought-provoking discussion questions and carefully chosen resources for further study, making this an ideal text for courses in health sciences, nursing, and related disciplines.

About the Contributors Index Copyright Acknowledgments
"This book provides a thorough account of health promotion today, both globally and nationally. I appreciate the emphasis on the future of health promotion, as we are in a state of flux both nationally and globally. Another strength is the book’s diverse mix of contributors—academics, practitioners, and policy makers. This allows students to analyze the issues from a number of perspectives.… I particularly like how well the chapters relate to one another. The book challenges readers to think beyond the information written and focus on critically analyzing its meaning.… It covers the topic very well, and is inclusive with respect to issues of race, class, and gender. It also presents the issues in a global perspective which, in our current state and for the future of humanity, is necessary to address."— Catherine Swanson, McMaster University
"Although I was also a fan of the previous editions, this is by far the strongest of the three. A particular strength is the linking of theory, research, and practice; the applied focus is key. I also think the text does an excellent job of situating health promotion within the broader field of public health."— Kim Raine, University of Alberta
