Editorial Reviews

Journal of American Medical Association
"This single volume, edited by David Satcher and Rubens Pamies, focuses primarily on racial and ethnic health disparities in the United States. Discussion of health care disparities is woven into many of the book's 34 chapters....I am confident that [this book] will serve as a valuable reference source for researchers and policy makers and as a textbook for graduate and undergraduate students for the remainder of the decade."—Journal of the American Medical Association
New England Journal of Medicine
"Former Surgeon General David Satcher and Rubens J. Pamies...have recruited 81 scholars — epidemiologists, demographers, clinicians, health service researchers, behavioral scientists, and others — from more than 40 academic medical centers, government agencies, research institutions, foundations, and think tanks....The result is a book that is well documented, lucid, comprehensive, and easily accessible — owing in no small measure to an inspired use of tables and figures to summarize evidence...this book should be on the desks — not the shelves — of physicians, students of the health professions, policymakers, and legislators."—New England Journal of Medicine
