Overview

"Winner of an AJN Book of the Year Award! Who has a right to health care? What is the government's role? How are corporations, insurance companies, and health care providers affecting the quality of health care? Can we reform the U.S. health care system?

In this innovative text, Gunnar Almgren provides all the tools necessary to understand and critique a health care policy in dire need of change. With its comprehensive coverage of U.S. health care, this unique text is accessible to all those in public health, nursing, social work, public policy, or public administration. No other book addresses the underlying issues of the U.S. health care system alongside a variety of social justice models that we can use to evaluate, and perhaps eventually, change it.
