'Extremely useful to health policy makers, administrators, health workers and academics. There is nothing comparable for those teaching on health policy and Walt has done us all a great service by filling this notable gap.'
Judith Justice, School of Medicine, Univesity of California at San Francisco
'Anyone who thinks that health policy is simply a matter of finding the best way to improve health should read this thoughtful and readable book which is illustrated with fascinating examples drawn from real life.'
Brian Abel-Smith, London School of Economics and Political Science
'Clearly written, with excellent examples and explanatory text. It should prove equally valuable to health workers, managers and academics.'
Patrick Vaughan, London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine
'Up to now there has been no single book concerning the study of the health policy process. Gill Walt provides the tools with which to analyse it. I shall certainly use her book for teaching health planners and managers from both developed and developing countries.'
Carol Barker, Nuffield Institute for Health, Leeds
