On Feb. 16, C-SPAN aired the launch event for Professor Robert I. Field's book "Mother of Invention: How the Government Created 'Free-Market' Health Care," and Professor Barry R. Furrow's health care law treatise, "Health Law -- Cases, Materials and Problems," now in its 7th edition.
Field's book, "Mother of Invention: How the Government Created 'Free-Market' Health Care," published by Oxford University Press, traces longstanding government policies that have allowed free enterprise to shape health care delivery in the U.S. In it, Field recounts the story of the health care system as a marriage of government and private sector interests.
Professor Barry Furrow covers a similar history in his extensive new health care law treatise, "Health Law -- Cases, Materials and Problems." Professor Furrow's book, however, goes beyond the history of health care legislation and touches upon the intersection of health care law and
contractual law, products liability, patents and trademark law and a myriad of subject matters.
