Reviews "Hunter provides a map of the recent history of public health and its link to health policy. His analysis of the twentieth-century public health profession and its weaknesses leads him to suggest new solutions for management and public health which shift the focus to health. This book makes an important contribution to the debate on raising the profile of health as an outcome of health policy. I can recommend it to all those interested in health management, policy or pubic health as a thoughtful analysis and a provocative challenge."
Sian Griffiths, University of Oxford
"Thoughtful, analytic and tough minded. David Hunter's feeling for what makes health policy tick has been successfully applied to public health. Recommended reading for everyone interested in making health policy work for the better."
Geof Rayner, Chairman of the UK Public Health Association
