Description:

To Live and Die in America details how the United States has among the worst indicators of health in the industrialised world and at the same time spends disproportionally more on its health care system than any other industrial nation. *BR**BR*Robert Chernomas and Ian Hudson explain this apparently contradictory phenomenon as the product of the unique brand of capitalism that has developed in the US. It is this particular form of capitalism that created both the social conditions that largely influence health outcomes and the inefficient, unpopular and inaccessible health care system that is incapable of dealing with them. *BR**BR*The authors argue that improving health in America requires a change in the conditions in which people live and work as well as a restructured health care system.
