Behaviour, lifestyle and identity are no longer the results of mass-production by social class and nation, but increasingly the quirky and unique eccentricities of the individual as consumer, reflexive citizen and free agent.

But if the hallmark of the post-modern world is endless variety and unlimited sub-cultural freedom, should we not be witnessing The End of Stigma?The book takes Fukuyamas notion of The End of History and examines contemporary challenges to the stigma associated with chronic illness. Award-winning author Gill Green examines cases of HIV, mental illness and substance misuse, to provide new insights into stigma in health. She demonstrates that people with long-term conditions refuse to be defined by their condition and highlights their increasingly powerful voice.

The End of Stigma will be of interest to a wide range of students and health professionals in medical sociology, health studies and social care.
