Health ProgressThis wide-ranging book discusses the history, problem, and future prospects of long-term care in America. Inspired by the 1992 National Health Forum held at the University of Florica and edited by an interdisciplinary team from medicine (Cluff), anthropology (von Mering), and social gerontology (Binstock), it contains chapters by 15 authors who represent the diverse fields of history, ethics, social welfare, nursing, health policy, and health-care administration... Unlike so much literature in gerontology, the book is clear, straightforward, and well focused on practical issues, while maintaining a high standard of scholarship throughout. Both academics and service professionals will find it extremely useful.
