Editorial Reviews

Swailem S. Hennein
This academic textbook is an introduction to the intricacies of the U.S. legal system and the law as they impact the financing and delivery of healthcare to communities and individuals. This is an updated fifth edition, with an added chapter on managed care. This book is meant to instruct future healthcare professionals who otherwise are not familiar with law, in the U.S. legal decision-making processes and forms of authority, power, and limitations as applied to provision of healthcare. The author sheds light also on areas of tension within the system, and how they are normally resolved. The target population of this work is graduates in training who wish to serve as practitioners and administrators in the general field of healthcare delivery. The historic antecedents of the present-day U.S. legal system and law are covered. The author introduces various players at various levels of government, and differentiates among various forms of authority whether constitutions, departments, and agencies. Over 220 legal cases are introduced, illustrating law in practice. Of much value for further study are the notes following each chapter. While there are other publications dealing with various aspects of this book, this is a compendium of appropriate length and depth of treatment for use in graduate course work. I would recommend it as required reading for those studying medicine, public health, and nursing.

An introductory textbook for law and law-related courses in schools of public health and medicine. Students are assumed to have some expertise in the delivery and financing of health care but little or no background in law. Wing (health law, U. of Washington and law, Seattle U.) explains the basic principles of the current status of crucial health care legal issues. The fifth edition generally keeps pace with changes in the industry, and adds a new chapter on managed care. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
