"His thoughtful speculations about the future of medicine come after a trenchant review of the last half century of spectacular metamorphosis in medical therapy and delivery systems. That background enables readers, especially those just becoming interested in health policy, to follow him logically from past to future... An easy and interesting guide to the background and evolution of medical therapy and health care delivery, with an extrapolation to the future. I recommend it to anyone concerned with health policy and also to practicing doctors who, immersed in patient care, had better take the time to learn where they fit in the scheme of things." FREDRICK ABRAMS, Journal of the American Medical Association "A physician grounded in economics, ethics, and public policy sheds light on medical care issues by examining how the recent past has shaped the present and what the future is likely to offer... A provocative analysis of the challenges facing makers of health-care policy." Kirkus Reviews "Schwartz delivers a splendid summary of current realities... He gives a clear, concise account of the technological and economic changes that have transfigured the world of medicine during the past fifty years." ALVAN FEINSTEIN, The Lancet "Well written and offer[s] many important insights." ARNOLD RELMAN, New England Journal of Medicine
