What scholars are saying about this book…

“This book connects all the dots—structural racism, class, power, gender, white supremacist culture, policy, ableism, and more—providing the most elegant and accessible explanation of how they all interact, connect, and shape not only embodied health but our environment and public policy. The stories, the data, and the analysis are deftly on point. This book is an absolute game changer.”—MAKANI THEMBA, Higher Ground Change Strategies

“In this landmark book, Nancy Krieger makes a compelling case for not simply working to address health inequities but grounding that work firmly in ecosocial theory and a deep understanding of the ‘embodied truths our bodies tell.’ A masterpiece, from one of the most important public health scholars of the last half century.”MEREDITH MINKLER, School of Public Health, UC Berkeley; co-editor, Community Organizing and Community Building for Health and Social Equity
