Essentials of Health Economics takes a timely approach to the study of the public health care system through the lens of economics. With the use of numerous examples and profiles related to the field, students and faculty will be able to grasp the importance and relevance of health economics as well as how it relates to more general analysis of health policy issues. This book has wide appeal among students of public health and health administration, since it conveys the essence of the economic issues at hand while avoiding complicated methodological issues that would interest only students of economics. It is written with the non-specialist in mind, while focusing on how to do descriptive, explanatory, and evaluative economics in a systematic way.

Essentials of Health Economics is just one offering in Jones and Bartlett's unique, integrated Essential Public Health series.
