Health Care Reform in the Nineties

Our nation's health care system is in crisis. Although no other country in the world allocates as large a portion of its GDP to health care as the United States, it is clear that the most basic health needs of many Americans are not being met, with disastrous implications for both the individual and our society as a whole. Health Care Reform in the Nineties presents the first extensive study of this long-neglected issue. This compilation is a valuable tool for policymakers and all others concerned with the most pressing social issue of our time. Editor Pauline Vaillancourt Rosenau has brought together a diverse group of distinguished scholars and advisors to examine health reform issues, providing readers with the broadest possible perspective: contributing author Dr. Linda A. Bergthold is a member of the Health Care Reform Task Force headed by Hillary Rodham Clinton. Detailing crucial information–from existing health care systems at the state level, federal level, and abroad, to the agendas of special interest groups (health care providers, business and trade unions, women, the elderly, and the homeless)–students and professionals will find this work a reasoned source of fact and opinion for the present with vision for future expansion and improvement.
