Politics, Power & Policy Making: The Case of Health Care Reform in the 1990s

By Mark E. Rushefsky; Kant Patel | Go to book overview

policy but also for anyone interested in American politics and policy making in general. Each of our substantive chapters (2 through 7) considers the two periods ( 1993-94 and 1995-96) separately and then brings them together in the chapter conclusions. They should be thought of as extended comparative case studies.

This is our second project together. Despite our strong political and philosophical differences ( Rushefsky is a Knicks fan and Patel roots for the Rockets), the first book survived the 1994 National Basketball Association finals. Since neither team made it to the 1997 finals, this project went more smoothly.

Apart from our mutual love of professional basketball, we also share a love of animals. One of us has a medium-to-large dog; the other has two small dogs and three cats. Like our differences in basketball attachments, lifestyle (one is married with two grown children, the other is single), and habits, our dogs also seem to reflect personality differences. The larger dog is friendly, welcoming all who enter the home. The smaller dogs act as if they graduated from police academy, barking at all sentient beings moving within a block or so of their house, welcoming only those who live there.

But somehow we have managed to be good friends for over a decade and worked well together. We have other projects in mind.


Acknowledgments

No person is an island, and no book is the product solely of its authors. We would like to thank Pauline Woods for her work on the bibliography and for proofreading parts of the manuscript. Tom Bliss, our graduate assistant, found articles for us and checked citations. He did a lot of the tedious work. We would also like to thank Patricia Kolb, executive editor at M. E. Sharpe, for her continued faith in us and Elizabeth Granda, program coordinator and Pat's assistant, for keeping us on track and on time. Thanks are also due to Steven Martin, production editor, and to his staff for the copyediting. Any remaining errors are the responsibility of the coauthor.
