Written from a refreshingly critical 'political economy' perspective that is often absent in discourse on global health, it provides the most coherent and systematic framing of the field currently available to scholars and practitioners. Reflecting shifts in thinking and terminology, the textbook is an update of the 3rd edition, which was entitled Textbook of International Health. A full chapter is devoted to outlining the continuities and differences between international and global health, while another provides an overview of current global health actors and activities.
As with previous editions, the textbook properly locates contemporary global health in a longer history of changing world orders, stretching back to colonialism, and the rise of agencies such as the WHO post-World War II. Within this clear overarching framework, the book then addresses all the major themes of global health: global patterns of disease, equity and social determinants of health, globalisation, trade and health, the rise of humanitarianism, climate change, health systems and health financing.
It concludes with chapters on 'building healthy societies' and social-justice approaches to global health, inviting readers to consider 'how the world order might be reimagined and rearranged. It is a weighty tome of pages, and each of the themes is dealt with expertly and thoroughly. From a pedagogical point of view, the chapters are laid out sequentially as a course on global health, and include key questions and lessons. While such courses are, in reality, unusual in South Africa SA or the region, individual chapters will be very useful for general public health programmes and for courses on globalisation and health.
One of the three co-authors is Dr Yogan Pillay, deputy director-general in the National Department of Health, and the approaches and content of the textbook will resonate with many in SA. I highly recommend the Textbook of Global Health as an incredible resource for educators, researchers and practitioners concerned with situating their work in a wider global reality. Gita Sen.
