The present edition demonstrates once again why this volume has come to be so prized. It takes the long view - charting recent developments in health policy, and putting them side-by-side with descriptions and analysis of existing programs in the United States and abroad." -Sherry Glied, PhD, Dean and Professor of Public Service, NYU Wagner, From the Foreword This fully updated and revised 11th edition of a highly esteemed survey and analysis of health care delivery in the United States keeps pace with the rapid changes that are reshaping our system.
