Justice and health care: Selected essays [Book Review]

Analysis 70 (4):802-803 (2010)
This collection comprises ten essays authored or co-authored by Allen Buchanan. They concern issues that are of great importance: public and private health care, the problem of rationing and the existence and scope of the right to health care, among many others. In general, Buchanan is a clear and careful analyst. He is a pluralist, not an apologist for a specific normative theory, such as utilitarianism or the Rawlsian theory of justice. He defends and practises the art of producing considered judgements from a plurality of intuitively plausible normative bases, proceeding in a way that is informed by the economic context in which health care decisions arise.
