Editorial Reviews

VOYA
Books in the Library in a Book series are marketed as "first-stop research sources," and this volume fulfills that role very well. It begins with a historical overview of health care delivery and patients' rights, followed by a discussion of issues such as privacy, access to care, and health care costs. Without being superfluous, this historical information is reinforced in later chapters that include an summary of legal decisions, a time line, a biographical listing of important figures, and a useful glossary. The guide to further research discusses general research skills and offers specific Web documents, databases, and other resources. The annotated bibliography is broad in scope. Well organized, with a format that allows information to be presented in a manner that does not overwhelm young adult readers, this book offers a comprehensive and thorough presentation. Potentially unfamiliar medical and legal terms are defined within the text as well as in the glossary. For much high-school-level work, this volume could stand alone as a complete resource for research on a range of health care topics. For those wishing to look more deeply into health care or patients' rights issues, its value is increased by the substantial annotated bibliography that addresses a variety of formats and topics. This book is recommended for high school and public libraries of all sizes as an excellent tool for student researchers. Glossary. Index. Biblio. Further Reading. Chronology. Appendix. 2001, Facts on File, 280p,
