Reviews

-Mirowsky and Ross have done the population health community a splendid service by presenting a compelling and complex story for the relationship between social status and health and identifying many important contentious issues for future theoretical debate and empirical exploration. I highly recommend [Education, Social Status, and Health] to all health researchers interested in the social and economic determinants of health and well-being.-

--Gerry Veenstra, Canadian Journal of Sociology Online

-John Mirowsky and Catherine Ross have made important contributions to this field, especially to our understanding of the relationship between educational attainment and health. . . . In this book, they summarize their prior research and venture some further personal thoughts on the connection between education and health. The result is a provocative review of the research and opinions of two leading figures in the field.-

--James S. House and Brian Goesling, Contemporary Sociology

-It is a systematic and comprehensive study of empirical research from two very productive sociologists.-

--William R. Avison, American Journal of Sociology
