Expanding the Boundaries of Health and Social Science, like its subject matter, is the result of innovative collaboration between the Social Science Research Council and the Office of Behavioral and Social Science Research of the National Institutes of Health. Twenty-eight experts in diverse disciplines, including aging, anthropology, behavior, epidemiology, geriatrics, medicine, mind-body interaction, population, psychology, psychiatry, and sociology, have contributed to this 430-page book. The volume contains 13 case-study examples of interdisciplinary innovation. In keeping with the World Health Organization definition that health is more than the mere absence of disease, it is the book's premise that human health involves much more than biology and anatomy.
