  5. THE ECONOMICS OF HEALTH

    THE ECONOMICS OF HEALTH

    Edited by Anthony J. Culyer
    Health economics has, in recent years, become a major area of research in economics. This important collection presents a careful selection of the best articles and is classified according to eight fields within health economics. It thus provides a comprehensive cross-section of the large and disparate literature on the subject. It forms, in a real sense, a book which will be invaluable for teachers and researchers who wish to have these frequently cited articles easily to hand. It will be essential for the many economists who will have difficulty in gaining access to the very diverse sources from which the material has been drawn. Learn More
