Editorial Reviews

“Jan Coombs has an encyclopedic knowledge of broad health care trends in the United States since 1970. She has written an original, well-documented, thorough, and very readable book. The personalized story of the Marshfield Clinic, with often-anguished statements from participants, brings national trends to life and gives this book urgency and freshness.”—Rosemary Stevens, author of American Medicine and the Public Interest
