it negatively in others, and what explains the differential success of AIDS prevention among African countries. Helliwell JF (2002) Globalization and Well-Being . Vancouver: University of British Columbia Press. This short, award-winning, accessible book, reveals the pluses and minuses of globali- zation with respect to health. The reasoned conclusion, empirically based, is that the social fabric matters more to well-being than income, with the importance of the social fabric grow- ing at a faster rate than had been thought. Townsend P and Davidson N (eds) (1982) Inequalities in Health: The Black Report . Harmondsworth: Penguin. The Black Report was the first acclaimed study to reveal, unequivocally, that women and men in the lowest occupational groups experience higher rates of mortality and morbidity (illness and disease) than those in higher occupational groups. Those in the lower occupational groups were approximately 2.5 times more likely to die before reaching retirement age than those in the highest occupational groups. Since this report, numerous studies, relying on dif- ferent conceptualizations of both health and class and different methodologies, have found a similar pattern, now known as the ‘social gradient of health’.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
