This wide-ranging text assesses the extent to which policy problems and responses in different countries have common causes or spring from specific national circumstances. The third edition has been revised throughout and now includes:

- details of recent reforms in Germany and Netherlands

Review:

“An excellent introductory text for a complex and changing subject which effectively shows how the forces of convergence in health and medical care policies are balanced against the national sources of continuing differences in how health care is delivered, financed, regulated, and evaluated.” —Ted Marmor, Professor of Public Policy & Management, Yale School of Management and Professor of Political Science, Yale University, USA
