Comments on the book:

"This book contains an analysis of the concepts which are used in the domain of health promotion and also offers a description of how they have evolved in an international perspective.
The arguments in the text are presented in depth and instead of laying down one thing after another, both the possibilities and difficulties in the work of health promotion are pointed out. For those of us who have been preoccupied practically with questions of the working environment, it is clear that we need to arouse the interest of both employers and employees in these issues. Anders Hanson's book is well adapted to this purpose".

Psychosocial Medicine in Stockholm


"This work is important, interesting and stimulating. It comes at the right time given the strains and stresses of modern society and working life. By providing a survey that is analytical and pragmatic, it is well-fitted to serve as textbook.
As far as Health Promotion is concerned, the book satisfies a hitherto unsatisfied need for a survey of the field in depth. In my own case, as a former Head of Health Promotion at the European Office of the World Health Organisation and thus very much involved in the Ottawa Conference, it has been especially interesting to have this follow-up".
