Health is political. This firmly held belief, however, has not systematically permeated public health policy making and its scholarship. The theoretical and conceptual insights of political science and international relations have not been widely deployed to improve public health and its policy processes. The Palgrave Studies in Public Health Policy Research series now provides a forum to do exactly that. We welcome monographs, edited collections, and Pivots (short form books of 25,000-50,000 words).
To submit, contact Jemima Warren, Commissioning Editor for Public Policy: firstname.lastname@example.org

This article assesses the rise in diverse workplaces of what the author terms “labour therapeutics”—the application of therapeutic ideas and interventions to the understanding and management of employee distress.
This article highlights the importance of viewing illness in social context. Kinderman argues in his comment piece that the social determinants of mental ill-health should be more prominently emphasised.
