Making Disease, Making Citizens takes a timely look at the disease, those directly affected by it and its social and cultural implications. Drawing on personal interviews and a range of textual sources, the book presents a scholarly and engaging analysis of a newly identified and highly controversial disease and its relationship to philosophies of health, risk and harm in the West.
It maps the social and medical negotiations taking place around the disease, shedding light on the ways these negotiations are also co-producing new selves. Adopting a feminist science and technology studies approach, this theoretically sophisticated, empirically informed analysis of the social construction of disease and the philosophy of health will appeal to those with interests in the sociology of health and medicine, health communication and harm reduction, and science and technology studies.
This book invents the new field of critical hep C studies, bringing to bear the creative energies of science studies to show us not only how to understand hep C, but also how to understand disease in the making. Making Disease Making Citizens not only provides a sophisticated political analysis of a "disease under construction", it develops an ethical and epistemological framework capable of illuminating other pressing health issues.

Inspired by the work done in feminist and science and technology studies, the authors show us how to use those methodologies in self-reflective ways, which in itself is a significant contribution to not only the sociology of health, but also social science methodology in general.
