In Review: 'Jonas & Kovner's Health Delivery in the United States'

In Review: 'Jonas & Kovner's Health Delivery in the United States'

" 'Jonas & Kovner's Health Care Delivery in the United States' is one of the best-known and longest-standing (first edition, 1977) compendiums on the unique problems of US health care policy. And with good reason -- like other grand textbooks such as Harrison's for internal medicine, Guyton's for psychology, or Robbins' for pathology, this text authoritatively demonstrates the breadth and depth of current foundational knowledge of its field."

Knickman. The book has sold has sold more than 300,000 copies since its publication in 1977.
