“Almost Great” – On Early View – Alexander Stingl’s review of ‘Imagining Illness’

Visual images have been of growing importance in Western Public Health. David Serlin’s edited collection “Imagining Illness. Public Health and Visual Culture” (Minnesota University Press 2010) compiles original chapters by an international authorship who explore public health features in and is influenced by visual culture. Alexander Stingl’s review of the book “Almost Great” that has just been published on Early View of Symbolic Interaction critically evaluates the contribution of the volume and the way in which it discusses, or fails to discuss, the relationship between “visual culture” and “public health culture”.
