Deftly quilting themes of Latin American and feminist liberation theologies with those of philosophers such as Immanuel Kant and John Rawls, Alastair V. Campbell displays our rich interconnectedness and our moral responsibilities to one another. Suggesting that many American citizens are oppressed by our current health-care system, he contends that prior to questions of health-care allocation are questions of what we mean as a society by the term health—and how that term is inextricably linked to personal and social freedom and liberation. In the forceful final chapter of the book, Campbell articulates ethical standards for just health-care delivery in the United States—standards that, above all, take account of deep religious faith and concern for one's neighbor.Health as Liberation is a critical analysis of justice and modern health care, and of a society's moral obligations to its citizens.
