Description:

Although there has been much debate about reform of the U.S. healthcare system, this book finds a neglected area of concern: the role played by bias in the provision of medical treatment. Surgeon, Augustus White, highlights how race, sexuality & class all seem to have a bearing on how sick people are treated.
