The Ceremonial Order of the Clinic: Parents, Doctors and Medical Bureaucracies


Add your own review!

Overview

This title was first published in 2001. A classic ethnographic study of the interactions between paediatricians and parents of children thought to be neurologically handicapped. Strong used this work to systematize the often chaotic ideas of Erving Goffman, to explore the connections between micro and macro analysis in sociology and to reflect on the nature of medical practice in modern liberal societies. The book stands as a testament to Strong's pursuit of methodological rigour in qualitative sociology.

Author Information

P.M. Strong (now deceased ) studied at the universities of Oxford and Essex, before moving to Aberdeen, where he played a key role in the intellectual development of medical sociology as a field of study. The Ceremonial Order comes from this period. Strong later moved to Oxford and then to the Open University, where he was one of the core authors in the launch of U205 Health and Disease, the first interdisciplinary distance learning course in this area. Subsequently, he moved to Warwick, where he did the research on NHS reorganisation that led to his other major book, The NHS: under new management (1990, with Jane Robinson). At the time of his death, Strong was working at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine on a study of the social history of AIDS. Robert Dingwall studied at the universities of Cambridge and Aberdeen, where he completed a PhD in medical sociology. He subsequently moved to Oxford, where he developed lines of research in law and society, many of which continued to explore health-related issues.
