This three-volume set brings together the most important and interesting papers on the economics of health behaviours such as smoking, drinking, drug use, and risky sex. Volume I explores the theoretical foundations; it also includes empirical papers on the household production of health and the link between schooling and health. Volume II covers research into the prediction and explanations of health behaviours and into the labour market consequences of unhealthy behaviour. Volume III features interactions between health behaviours and the impact of related public policies. This authoritative collection will be of particular interest to economists, social scientists and health services researchers.
