Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

This is a chronologically-organized collection of some 150 historical documents, from governmental and nongovernmental sources, shedding light on the evolution of health policy and politics in the United States. The documents are presented in ten chapters, each covering a different period from 1600 to 2010 and each including introductory notes providing historical context. The topical scope of the documents can perhaps be demonstrated by listing the headings from the volume's thematic table of contents: abortion and family planning; court cases; disease prevention and public health; end-of-life issues; environmental issues and food safety; health care reform efforts under Barack Obama; health care reform efforts under Bill Clinton; health insurance, health care reform, and medical costs; health professionals and medical education; health services for special groups; HIV and AIDS; hospitals; medical research; Medicare and Medicaid; mental health; pharmaceuticals and vaccines; social security; and tobacco.
