Socioeconomic issues that affect medical and surgical care are now regarded as being primarily important in shaping and determining the quality of care, making this multiauthored volume particularly timely. Unfortunately, the uneven quality of the contributed chapters limits the book's potential strength. The stronger chapters, those on surgical manpower, small area variations, and surgical second-opinion, are well reasoned. Other topics covered include diagnostic related groups (DRGs), databases, clinical decisionmaking, malpractice, and practice qualifications. (DBN)
