Abstract

With this masterful book, Vicente Navarro makes another outstanding contribution to the national health policy debate in the United States and further advances his position as one of this country's foremost policy analysts.

In his work over the past four decades, Navarro has emerged as a persuasive critic of the US health care system and as a widely respected proponent of a single-payer national health program. Previously, he has provided sophisticated international comparisons of policies in Europe, Canada, and Latin America. He has done a great service to students of the US system through his brilliant analysis of social class, racism, and sexism as major barriers to be overcome. In particular, he has called attention consistently to the importance of social class as a determinant of access to services, health outcomes, and power in policymaking.

The present book is part of an ambitious series that Monthly Review Press is publishing
