The author undertakes the monumental task of collecting, organizing, and annotating the burgeoning literature on health care law and policy. The result is an enormously valuable resource, one that every health care lawyer, administrator, academic, and policy analyst should have immediately at hand."—Mark A. Hall, professor of law and public health, Wake Forest University"A must-purchase for anyone researching the vast spectrum of health care legal information. This is an excellent and thorough guide to the rapidly growing literature in this field. Researchers will particularly value the insightful and comprehensive annotations to books, articles, and electronic sources."—Pauline M. Aranas, assistant dean for library and information technology, the Alyne Queener Massey Law Library and associate professor of law, Vanderbilt University"The information age requires access to and organization of information, as much as it requires the creation of the information itself. The field of health care law is no exception. This book is an invaluable resource in providing that organization and access to a growing body of information that has heretofore been poorly organized and difficult to access. It provides a critical research tool to meet the challenge of understanding the literature regarding health care law and policy."—Keith M. Korenchuk, attorney, Davis Wright Tremaine LLPThe AuthorDonald H. Caldwell Jr. is an attorney in the private practice of corporate law in Charlotte, North Carolina.
