From the reviews: "This book addresses the growing problem of the uninsured from the perspective of the root causes and discusses strategies for providing care. ... the book would be useful to graduate health professional students or those studying health policy. ... this book presents case scenarios and more personal accounts of the problem in a more academic way, lending itself to use in the classroom." (Carole Ann Kenner, Doody's Review Service, March, 2010) "Nancy Johnson ... have edited a new textbook about the care of the uninsured. The Care of the Uninsured in America is long on statistics and chock full of programmatic examples, including reproduced diagrams, charts, surveys, and copies of flyers. The Johnsons recruited colleagues ... to supply the 20 essays that comprise the chapters of this book, which is aimed at policy makers and undergraduate and graduate classrooms of schools of public and community health. ... The chapters contain thorough references ... ." (Jeff Levin-Scherz, Journal of the American Medical Association, Vol. 303 (23), 2010)
