Multiauthored texts often bring together the best of multiple perspectives
and unique knowledge and understanding. But they also suffer, equally frequently,
from the difficulty of integrating multiple views and voices into a coherent
whole. In the case of Health Care Delivery in the United
States, the editors have done their work well, better than most, in
integrating the diverse material and views of disparate authors with unique
perspectives, expertise, and skills. I am familiar with the text, having used
earlier editions for 2 years in teaching a large undergraduate course.
