Every industrial nation in the world guarantees their citizens access to essential health care services - every country, that is, except the United States. Indeed, one in eight Americans - a shocking 43 million people - the majority in working families, do not have any health care insurance. This title offers a history of America's failed efforts to address the health care needs of its citizens.
