Overview

These essays celebrate the achievements of Rudolf Klein, an exemplary colleague in the study of politics and policy, especially of health and health services. Rudolf Klein's work continues to defeat conventional labels after more than four decades of prolific publication. He is a historian, a journalist, a political scientist, a policy analyst, a social scientist, an academic, and an advisor to public bodies.
