Editorial Reviews


• Exposes the history of segregation in U.S. health care

• Examines the continuing challenge of balancing technological innovation and offering new avenues for fraud

• Discusses the polarizing topic of the role of government in health care infrastructure, access, and public health

"The text is clearly written and indexed with chapter references and summaries. Useful for all academic audiences and an important resource for professionals in the health field, especially those in public health and policy. Summing Up: Highly recommended."



Book Description

Health care reform has recently become a hotly contested topic in the United States, but health care in America has been fraught with inequity for over a century. Before the enactment of Medicare, the elderly were barred from hospitals. Today, poor business practices and rampant fraud undermine health care resources, creating shortages, further driving up the cost of adequate care, and causing more inequity.
