Uninsured in America, Updated Summary


Uninsured in America, Updated: Life and Death in the Land of Opportunity by Susan Sered

"Uninsured in America" goes to the heart of why more than forty million Americans are falling through the cracks in the health care system, and what it means for society as a whole when so many people suffer the consequences of inadequate medical care. Based on interviews with 120 uninsured men and women and dozens of medical providers, policymakers, and advocates from around the nation, this book takes a fresh look at one of the most important social issues facing the United States today. A new afterword updates the stories of many of the people who are so memorably presented here.

Uninsured in America, Updated Reviews


"If Upton Sinclair aimed for the public's heart and hit its stomach instead, Sered and Fernandopulle's discussion of caste lands an unnerving shot to the mouth.... Introducing meaningful change into the health-care system will take work from all quarters; and academics like Sered and Fernandopulle...have an indispensable role to play in that effort." Benjamin Healy, New Republic "A moving account of what it is like to be 'uninsured in America.' May it awaken the conscience of the nation." David U. Himmelstein, M.D., and Steffie Woolhandler, M.D., MPH, Journal of the American Medical Association "A vivid, indignant, and important book, and it does one thing better than any other before: Uninsured makes the abandoned millions visible again. Read it." Atul Gawande, M.D., author of Complications"
