‘The Changing Character of the Medical Profession’ brings together noted medical sociologists and public health experts to assess the changing status of the medical profession in the United State and thirteen other countries, including nations in the former Communist bloc and the developing world. The book is organized in three broad sections. The first part provides an overview of the theoretical questions and debates to be addressed by the work as a whole; the second features case studies of individual countries which illustrate the book’s major themes; and the third part concludes with four discussions by noted scholars (Eliot Freidson, Sol Levine, David Mechanic, and Milton Roemer) regarding the lessons that international trends and variations hold for analysts of the medical profession. There is no other book like this in the market today. Its theoretical and international perspective on this important topic of health care makes it indispensable to anyone with an interest in health care.
