Chronicity Enquiries : Making Sense of Chronic Illness

Edited by Zhenyi, Li; Edited by Rieder Bennett, Sara

Chronic illness, together with people experiencing or treating it, became almost mute to predominant biomedical narration pervasive in mainstream media, education, medical and pharmaceutical industry. Contributors in this book aim to represent, discuss, and preserve the vanishing voices and stories on chronic illness from dimensions beyond medicine so that we may make sense of chronicity with the diversity it deserves. The book also incorporates research which shares important stories about chronicity. These stories, same as chronic illness in our world, should not be treated in a 'standardised' way. Each reader, we hope, will relate the meanings of chronicity in this book to his or her own world.
