This text explores the changing role of the state in Canada, Britain and the USA in the area of health care. Welfare systems have survived, in many cases, by experimenting with alternative forms of delivering services - this book focuses on how these models signal both persistence and transformation.

As Mary Ruggie demonstrates in this illuminating study, the welfare state is not collapsing; instead, federal governments are redefining their roles in relation to social and market forces. Chronicling the evolution of health policy in the United States, Britain, and Canada, this presents evidence that central governments, rather than merely passing off responsibilities for financing and providing social benefits to the private sector, are actively overseeing a complex network of social care as they move from a system of provision to one of supervision.Review:
"Ruggie has provided an impressive analysis of health policy across three countries. Moreover, she ably accomplished her objective of using analytic framework to identify features of welfare states in transition that may signal a realignment of roles, relations, and modes of decision-making." -- "Boston Book Review"
