Review

"The Praeger Handbook of Veterans Health is a remarkable achievement. Highly informative, it covers an astonishing array of topics. The special health care needs of veterans are emphasized in the context of programs developed in the Department of Veterans Affairs to meet those needs. In so doing the Handbook honors veterans and those who care for them." (John Booss, MD, Professor Emeritus, Departments of Neurology and Laboratory Medicine, Yale University School of Medicine)|"These volumes, for the first time, delineate the motivation for and structural underpinnings of our country's system of healthcare for veterans and examine the contributions of VA research and medical care to the health of all Americans. The handbook addresses the special challenges of evaluating and treating those who suffered much in service to our country and lays the groundwork for future endeavors, often sharing a vision of opportunities for continuing improvement and change. In one source, we find the history of medical care for soldiers and veterans in the United States and its evolution to the comprehensive healthcare provided today with emphasis on common medical conditions, especially mental health care. Additionally, the role of the VA in medical education and the breadth of its influence in educating students and residents in many disciplines is presented so that the reader may know that the VA remains a mighty resource for training healthcare workers for tomorrow. I have known Dr. Thomas Miller as colleague and friend for nearly 20 years and have always appreciated his enthusiasm and commitment to the discipline of Psychology and to the psychological health of veterans. He is internationally known for his research and is a leader, especially, in the recognition and management of the effects of stresses of many types on our lives. This handbook is a labor of love, born of values instilled by his family and many years of experience managing a Psychology Service and treating veterans and their families. As such, it is a fitting legacy for a compassionate, caring clinician and will enlighten those who read its pages. " (James R. McCormick MD, FCCP, Professor and Chief, Division of Pulmonary, Critical Care and Sleep Medicine, University of Kentucky)|"An impressive opus describing the history, legislation, dedication, and future of the VA health care system. The individual authors are truly world class experts in their chosen fields. Together, they provide an exciting glimpse into the interdisciplinary and integrated world of VA medicine and healthcare, in its broadest and most creative sense. The passage of President Obama's landmark health care reform legislation reflects the exemplary experiences and proven vision of decades of uncompromising VA personnel, providing the highest possible quality of care to those who willingly put themselves "in harm's way" for our nation. This is an inspirational treatise heralding the best of public service." (Pat DeLeon JD, PhD, former President, American Psychological Association, Chief of Staff to Hon. Sen. Daniel Inouye, Hawaii)|"The Praeger Handbook of Veterans' Health delivers a masterfully comprehensive discourse on topics most salient to Veteran care in the past, present and future. Simultaneously exhaustive and constructive, this collection provides historical context, actionable insights and thought leadership critical to the evolution of Veteran care and large systems of care generally. Dr. Miller convenes a panel of nationally renowned researchers and clinicians to educate and evoke thought among readers unfamiliar with the VA system as well as those with seasoned careers serving Veterans. The implications of this unprecedented work for the care of Veterans and civilians alike cannot be overstated." (Sara Smucker Barnwell, PhD, Director, Telemental Health, VA Puget Sound Health Care System, Seattle Division, Seattle, WA)|"The Praeger Handbook of Veterans Health is an excellent collection which should be mandatory reading for every practitioner in the veteran's system. This is a comprehensive four volume set containing a historical and accurate reflection of today's challenges facing the Veteran's Health Administration. Captured in these four volumes are the financial dilemmas while also suggesting possibilities for state of the art advanced care that our veteran's deserve. This volume set represents a myriad collection of veteran problems, potential solutions, and a global picture not yet available in the public domain. A fascinating read for all interested in understanding 21st century Veterans' healthcare issues. Dr. Miller nailed it!" (Steve Campbell, Licensed Clinical Social Worker, Department of Veterans Affairs and U.S. Army Veteran)
