about

Drawing on a wide range of sources, from popular literature, movies, and television drama to government and institutional documents, this book reveals similarities in the presumptions underlying British and American health policies, while also exploring the distinctive way in which policy was shaped by political culture, class relationships, and economic resources in each country.
