The contributors to Global Health & Global Aging are characterized by their eminence and wide range of experience in governmental and international organizations. While Global Health & Global Aging shares those features with the first text in this series, Critical Issues in Global Health (edited in 2001 by former US Surgeon General C. Everett Koop), this is much less of an introductory overview and is more candid in suggesting reforms to the US health care system. A brief survey of the 31 chapters suggests the breadth and quality of this work.
