Medicalization or medicalisation (see spelling differences) is the process by which human conditions and problems come to be defined and treated as medical conditions, and thus become the subject of medical study, diagnosis, prevention, or treatment. Medicalization can be driven by new evidence or hypotheses about conditions; by changing social attitudes or economic considerations; or by the development of new medications or treatments.

This classic text on the nature of deviance, originally published in 1980, is now reissued with a new Afterword by the authors. In this new edition of their award-winning book, Conrad and Schneider investigate the origins and contemporary consequences of the medicalization of deviance. They examine specific cases―madness, alcoholism, opiate addiction, homosexuality, delinquency, and child abuse―and draw out their theoretical and policy implications. In a new chapter, the authors address developments in the last decade―including AIDS, domestic violence, co-dependency, hyperactivity in children, and learning disabilities―and they discuss the fate of medicalization in the 1990s with the changes in medicine and continued restrictions on social services.

I love learning. And with this text, a LOT of learning occurred (in my class, Sociology of Deviance, at an esteemed public university. I'm stil learning from it. I am especially glad that this text is available on all the e-devices, too.

P.S. This book helped me work through a major depressive episode - it brought on a personal revelation, if you will. I just hope that it serves you well, too :).

This was ordered for my sister who requested this book by name. She said this book was just the right one. I'm not sure if she liked the book or not, but she was very appreciative so it must be good:).

I read this book for a course on the sociology of deviance, andfound it a valuable resource. It traces the historical developement of deviant 'sicknesses' such as opiate addictions, mental illness, homosexuality, and attention deficit disorder. The book examines how these forms of deviance were understood historically, and how they came they came to be understood as forms of 'sickness.' Conrad and Schneider examine medical model of understanding deviance, which is currently standard, from a removed and critical perspective. In the forward (of my edition) Joseph Gusfield puts it thusly, "They treat the medical model as something strange, not as something that is 'taken for granted' as 'normal.' When a body a body of thought or phenomemon is taken as problematic, as something to be explained, its naturalness, its claim to 'reality,' is called to account." This book does an excellent job at calling the claims of the medical model into account. This book offers new perspectives on hot-topics, is well organized, and is extremely well-researched. I would warn people that it is dense reading, and some people may find it hard to get through. I would especially recommend this book to any who would form a stance on any of the following issues: drug use/abuse, mental illness, juvenile delinquency, homosexuality, and medicine as a means of social control.
