Health Security for All by Alan Derickson

Book Description

This provocative work explores the invention and reinvention of a fundamental goal of American social policy-universal health care. In Health Security for All, Alan Derickson examines the emergence of diverse proposals for all-encompassing health reform since the early twentieth century. This study discovers not only a number of imaginative arguments for extending health services but also an unexpectedly wide array of passionate advocates for universalism. An innovative approach to one of the great unresolved social and political problems of our time, Health Security for All will be of interest to social scientists, health policy scholars, historians, and idealists across the political spectrum.

Black Lung: Anatomy of a Public Health Disaster by Alan Derickson Black Lung: Anatomy of a Public Health Disaster, Paperback (September 1998)

In the definitive history of a twentieth-century public health disaster, Alan Derickson recounts how, for decades, the combined failure of government, medicine, and industry to halt the spread of black lung disease-and even to acknowledge its existence-resulted in a national tragedy, the effects of which are still being felt.
