Summary note
"Since the 1970s the state has witnessed significant challenges to its control over social policy institutions in the arena of health care. Examining these changes in comparative perspective, this volume provides a quantitative overview of financing, regulation and service provision for 21 OECD countries, with an in-depth qualitative analysis of three cases -- the US, UK and Germany. The book argues that healthcare systems are converging towards mixed regimes and that this marks a new era in welfare state history" / Provided by publisher.
