Back to Reform is a persuasive discussion of the moral values that drove the movement for health care reform and that remain insistent today. The book is also a critique of exclusive reliance on market reforms in health care. By examining the values at the heart of the need for health care reform, Dougherty examines the incompatabilities between these values and those related to the marketplace. This book is a thoughtful and eloquent reminder of the moral dimensions of health care and health care reform. It also builds a strong case that government must play a leading role if health care change is going to amount to health care reform.
