From the Publisher
"An important contribution in the burgeoning literature relating to the delivery of medical care, and to the broader question of responsible decision-making in those social areas where tragic choices have to be made. The effort is an excellent example of research into, and therapy for, an important social process."
—Edward Chase, Camden Law Journal
“This is a paperback reissue of a monograph published in 1975 by the Russell Sage Foundation. The study is an analysis of the issues related to catastrophic diseases and the biomedical innovations developed in response to them. . . . The book’s purpose is not merely examination of these issues but construction of a framework for their analysis that will be stimulating to scholars and useful to medical and societal decisionmakers. . . . [The] main points of the model represent sound and significant proposals.”
—John J. Lally, Contemporary Sociology
