''Another masterpiece in health economics from a doyen in the field, this expanded and updated dictionary will undoubtedly become a standard reference work for scholars, practitioners and others working in this area. The definitions are concise, the coverage is comprehensive, the cross-referencing is excellent, and the subject and name indexes greatly assist navigation of this substantial tome. You will want to keep this one within arm''s reach.'' Jim Butler, Australia National University ''Health economics and health service research as well as health care policy, delivery and finance rely on a dizzying array of terms drawn from a diverse set of disciplines including (but not limited) to economics, epidemiology, risk science and statistics. Moreover, the health and health care systems are replete with acronyms and specialized institutions. The Dictionary of Health Economics provides the most comprehensive set of definitions and explanations of these terms available. It is a fantastic resource for anyone working in any health related field.'' Michael Chernew, Harvard Medical School, US ''This dictionary is unique. What other dictionary borders on being an enjoyable read? Its breadth is quite astonishing. It is also very clearly a health economics dictionary and will allow those in mainstream economics, in the other social sciences and in health sciences and health care to understand and be better able to communicate with health economists. It will also be a most useful addition to the bookshelves of health economists like myself.'' Gavin Mooney, University of Sydney, Australia ''This book is a welcome addition for graduate students or professionals interested in the taxonomy of health care.'' David Cutler, Harvard University, US ''Health economics is at the crossroads of medicine, economics, statistics, insurance, and the law. This often makes for difficult reading. But help is now available thanks to this amazingly comprehensive Dictionary of Health Economics. I for one ran into several entries that I did not or did not fully understand, but the very clear explanations changed that within a few moments! This Dictionary is a true service to the scientific community.'' Peter Zweifel, University of Zurich, Switzerland ''The Dictionary provides a comprehensive overview and authoritative yet accessible explanation of important terms and concepts from the increasingly important field of health economics. This excellent work will enable many entering this field, students and professionals alike, to quickly yet thoroughly grasp the meaning of the health economics jargon, facilitating study and (multi-disciplinary) co-operation. Anthony Culyer is sharing his impressive knowledge in this field in a clear and user-friendly fashion, hopefully to the benefit of many readers.'' Werner Brouwer, Erasmus University Rotterdam, the Netherlands ''An essential book to steer the student away from a minefield of inaccurate and woolly definitions and an important resource of the practitioner of health economics. A book that offers the reader accuracy and rigour in the definitions it provides of key terms in health economics alongside ready access.'' John Brazier, University of Sheffield, UK This second edition of Culyer''s authoritative Dictionary of Health Economics brings the material up to date and adds large amounts of new information. Some definitions have been revised. There are over 700 new entries. The Dictionary now also contains extensive references to the literature to identify original source material or to provide illustrations of the headword in use. The bibliography comprises some 1,000 items. In view of the huge growth in cost-effectiveness studies and the continuing variability in their quality, an appendix lists 100 high quality cost-effectiveness studies from all parts of the world. There are now many more entries and references relating to the developing world. New and separate subject and name indices provide supplementary means of searching the material and identifying individuals who have contributed significantly to the oeuvre.
