Book Summary:
Now in paperback, a powerful argument for a new health care system. Polls show Americans increasingly unhappy with our health care system. Yet for nearly thirty years, our next-door neighbor has had a universal, public health insurance system that its citizens hail as their favorite social program. So why can't it happen here? Universal Health Care explains how it can. Clear and convincing, Universal Health Care shows that health care can be funded from the public purse without eliminating choice and without bankrupting government, and it proves that a public, single-payer system can deliver high quality care at much less cost to many more people than one based on market forces.

Pat Armstrong is Director of the School of Canadian Studies, and Hugh Armstrong teaches in the School of Social Work, both at Carleton University in Ottawa. Together they are the authors of Wasting Away, The Double Ghetto, and other works.
