To Live and Die in America: Class, Power, Health and Health Care by Robert Chernomas and Ian Hudson. This book details how the United States has among the worst indicators of health in the industrialized world and at the same time spends significantly more on its health care system than any other industrial nation. The authors explain this phenomenon as the product of the unique brand of capitalism that has developed in the U.S. It is this particular form of capitalism that created both the social and economic conditions that largely influence health outcomes and the inefficient, unpopular and inaccessible health care system that is incapable of dealing with them.
