An uneasy equilibrium: Private and public financing of health service in the United States 1875-1965.

New Haven, CT: College and University Press, 1968.

The central theme of this book is that health policy in the Unitesd States is the product of a deep ambivalence in public attitudes that on the one hand support a private, market-oriented health provision system, while on the other hand favoring a collective, increasingly public, means of financing. In 1985 Anderson issued what was essentially a revised and extended version of this book as Health services in the United States: A growth enterprise since 1875 (Ann Arbor, MI: Health Adminstration Press, 1985).
