Abstract:

"Fair Society, Healthy Lives, the fourth Annual Balzan Lecture by 2004 Balzan Prizewinner Sir Michael Marmot, is a very timely contribution to the debate on what kind of society we should live in and the role of the state in creating such a society particularly in the field of health care. Sir Michael makes an impassioned case for early intervention to create the conditions for a fair society and correspondingly a healthier life for all. The Annual Balzan Lecture is a well regarded series of academic lecturers given by Balzan Prizewinners on topics related to their Balzan Research projects that showcase the latest developments in various academic fields. These publications are destined for a general audience. It is intended that through these volumes the conclusions derived from the innovative research emanating from the Balzan Research projects will be brought to a much wider public. Sir Michael's Balzan Research Project has established a series of fellowships at University College London's International Institute for Society and Health tied to research on the determinants of health and well-being in society."--Publisher's website.
