What We Need to Talk About When We Talk About Health

Sandro Galea

  • A radical argument for how health has little to do with medicine -- and how America gets it wrong
  • Offers explanation for why people in the U.S., despite spending more on health than any other country, remain less healthy and live shorter lives than people in other rich nations
  • The first book to consider how the fabric of the U.S. -- its history, wealth, politics, and power -- contributes to shorter, less healthy lives
  • Highly relevant to current conversations around healthcare reform, environmental deregulation, the implications of tax reform, welfare and entitlement programs, and immigration
