About this Item

"Driven by the demographic tsunami of a rapidly-aging population, the costs of universal healthcare in Japan have grown to unprecedented levels. As these same demographic trends are mirrored in other industrialized countries, many people are asking if Japan will become the global test case for healthcare delivery.It is this critical certainty of the healthcare dilemma for the Japanese that this book examines in depth; its self-evident lessons for the rest of the industrialized world should make it required reading at all healthcare levels; its relevance will also be apparent to those whose work or academic interests are concerned with Japanese healthcare, the Japanese economy, or contemporary Japanese society." This book has 154 pages. The text contains NO internal marks whatsoever. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Bookseller Inventory # 065780
