Abstract

Australia’s Rural and Remote Health: a social justice perspective is a unique book. In a frank, engaging and insightful was it explains the concepts, questions the bureaucratic systems, and explores the opportunities for change. It paints real faces onto the rural health landscape using innovative storytelling techniques, historical accounts and real life experience, supported by the broad literature. It tackles the difficult issues of racism, culture, genocide, Indigenous health, human rights, workforce issues and social capital. It then weighs them against the impacting statistics, politics, policies and practices, using a primary health care framework, in a practical and user friendly way. This provocative and heartfelt book will help rural health students, practitioners, policy makers, and educationalists from many disciplines to find their way across the sunburnt country.
