Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

This Handbook provides an authoritative overview of current issues and debates in the field of health care management. It contains over twenty chapters from well-known and eminent academic authors, who were carefully selected for their expertise and asked to provide a broad and criticaloverview of developments in their particular topic area. The development of an international perspective and body of knowledge is a key feature of the book.The Handbook secondly makes a case for bringing back a social science perspective into the study of the field of health care management. It therefore contains a number of contrasting and theoretically orientated chapters (e.g. on institutionalism; critical management studies). This social sciencebased approach is a refreshing alternative to much existing work in this domain and offers a good way into current academic debates in this field.The Handbook thirdly explores a variety of important policy and organizational developments apparent within the current health care field (e.g. new organizational forms; growth of management consulting in health care organizations). It therefore explores and comments on major contemporary trendsapparent in the practice field.
