"As we bask in the longest economic boom in history and an unprecedented accumulation of wealth, Aday relentlessly reminds us of the dire health needs of our vulnerable populations. This new edition will be as valuable as the first was to researchers, policymakers, practitioners, and ethicists." (Mary Ruggie, professor, J. F. Kennedy School of Government, Harvard University)
"Lu Ann Aday has done it again. The second edition of At Risk in America will be an indispensable resource for health care providers, public health officials, and health services researchers, and it should be taken especially seriously by anyone concerned with health care policy in the United States." (Bruce C. Vladeck, professor of health policy and geriatrics, and director, Institute for Medicare Practice, Mount Sinai School of Medicine)
"A useful book for health care practitioners, teachers, researchers, and students of public health. Highly Recommended." (Choice, 12/01)
"What makes Aday's contribution significant is her methodical identification of groups that exist in the midst of a land of plenty, yet are not necessarily living the American dream." (Nephrology Nursing Journal, April 2002)
