This book is well-timed, albeit not fully satisfying. The author, professor of health policy and administration at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, addresses the following questions: "Where is the public health enterprise headed, and how is it moving? How is it answering the question of profit making and the public's health in a world captivated by the marketplace? Where should and could the public health community move to pursue its mission? What is its explicit and implicit message to policymakers and the public? What should it be saying?"
