Califano urges bold action to save the best of American medicine, nourish its genius, contain its costs, and democratize its miracle cures. He warns that the obsession of the nation's politicians with raising campaign money and their fetish with financing and delivering sick care will continue to push up costs and limit the number of Americans with access to care. Speaking with uncommon candor and lively anecdotes, he shows why successful reform must reshape not just the treatment of illness and injury, but also where the nation invests its research dollars and how much it devotes to prevention

In High Society, Joseph Califano points out that a child who reaches twenty-one without smoking, using illegal drugs, or abusing alcohol is virtually certain never to do so - and chronicles the fearful cost in personal pain and public dollars of our nationʼs failure to act on this truth. Califano shows how substance abuse is the culprit in violent and property crime, soaring Medicare and Medicaid costs, family breakup, domestic violence, the spread of AIDS, teen pregnancy, poverty, and low productivity. He takes on alcohol and tobacco interests that buy political protection with campaign contributions and seed a culture of substance abuse among our nationʼs children and teens. He explains the importance of parent power, proposes revolutionary changes in prevention, treatment, and criminal justice, and calls upon every individual and institution to confront this plague that has maimed and killed more Americans than all our wars, natural catastrophes, and traffic accidents combined. Includes information on alcohol abuse, alcohol addiction, alcohol industry, binge drinking, amphetamines, children, cigarette advertising, cocaine, college students, depression, ectasy, heroin, lobbying and lobbyists, LSD, marijuana, methamphetamine, nicotine, OxyContin, prescription drugs, Ritalin, secondhand (passive) smoke, smoking, teens, tobacco industry, treatment, Valium, Vicodin, women, etc
