Summary
American science produces the best medical treatments in the world. Yet U.S. citizens lag behind in life expectancy and quality of life. Robert Kaplan marshals extensive data to make the case that U.S. health care priorities are sorely misplaced-- invested in attacking disease, not in solving social problems that engender disease in the first place
