In this introductory text, Sultz and Young (social and preventive medicine, U. of Buffalo, State U. of New York) offer insights into the nation's largest service industry. They provide a readable, up-to-date overview of the factors that have shaped the current health care system, its structure, challenges, and reform efforts. Graphs provide perspective on such trends as enrollment in managed care and national health care expenditures. The volume includes a glossary to the field's "alphabet soup" and Web resources. The first edition appeared in 1996.
