What Makes Health Public?: A Critical Evaluation of Moral, Legal, and Political Claims in Public Health (Cambridge Bioethics and Law)John Coggon argues that the important question for analysts in the fields of public health law and ethics is ‘what makes health public?’ He offers a conceptual and analytic scrutiny of the salient issues raised by this question, outlines the concepts entailed in, or denoted by, the term ‘public health’ and argues why and how normative analyses in public health are inquiries in political theory.
