"The topics are timely...The manuscript's strength is in its thoughtful and careful analysis of the topics it covers. It would seem this strength is derived from the authors' many years of experience engaged in health care activism, in thinking and in writing about these topics." Dr. Lynda Ross, Athabasca University
