Review

We will not be able to eliminate disparities in health status that stem from inequality, but we can reduce them.

(Future Survey 2008-01-00)

Health Disparities in the United States: Social Class, Race, Ethnicity, and Health will serve well as a foundational text for courses on the subject and for individuals looking for a well-organized, highly researched text.

(JAMA 2008-01-00)

Clearly written, with an extensive list of references, it will be useful for all audiences and an important text for professionals in the health field, especially those in medical education. Highly recommended.

(Choice 2009-01-00)

Dr. Barr's book is an excellent read on how race and ethnicity affect health care and contribute to health disparities.

(Jose A. Lopez, MD, MPH Family Medicine 2009-01-00)

Barr's book will go a long way toward convincing American policy makers and the public that health disparities are neither acceptable nor inevitable.

(Christopher Masi Social Service Review 2009-01-00)

Barr has written a captivating and well-researched book.

(Krista Drescher-Burke Journal of Sociology and Social Welfare 2010-01-00)

Clearly articulates the problem of health disparities and how socioeconomic status and race and ethnicity are interwoven. Barr has brought together a vast amount of material in a conceptually meaningful way that hopefully will be digested by those in training to be medical professionals.
