Life expectancy in countries of Central and Eastern Europe is substantially shorter than in Western Europe, and a similar divide exists in self-rated health.
This exhaustive study of populations in seven Central and European countries – Russia, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, Poland, Czech Republic and Hungary – examines the social and psychosocial determinants of this divide. Practitioners and graduate students of public health and social psychology will find this an invaluable resource.
