What People are Saying About This

An American Health Dilemma is by far the most comprehensive historical and sociocultural analysis ever published on race and the African-American medical experience. We are indebted to Drs. Byrd and Clayton for these two groundbreaking volumes. (William Julius Wilson, Harvard University)

John Conyers Jr.

An American Health Dilemma offers a wealth of information on the role race plays in health delivery in imerica. This long overdue work is the first comprehensive explanation of how the race and class-based health disparities evolved in the United States...A must-read for anyone interested in correcting the existing inequalities in the current health system. (U.S. Congressman John Conyers, Jr.)

Joe Feagin

In a pioneering analysis these talented Harvard scholars examine the historical origins and persistence of discrimination in the health care system....This book is must reading for every American doctor and every other health provider, as well as for the general public. (Joe Feagin, University of Florida)

An extraordinary achievement by the authors to bring together...the history of the African-American health experience in the U.S. and its broader historical perspective. (From the Foreword by Robert J. Blendon, Harvard School of Public Health and Kennedy School of Government)
