LSHTM on the bookshelf – September 2011

This month sees a new publication by The King’s Fund and edited by LSHTM’s Nicholas Mays and Lorelei Jones, with the contribution of Pauline Allen.

Government after Government, a central point of every political campaign involves a plan to reform the NHS. The New Labour Government in office in the late 1990s was no exception.

Integrating research projects commissioned and funded by the Department of Health with a wide range of other available sources, the book explores the policies implemented at the time by the Government to reinvigorate the English NHS and asks the questions: Did it work? And what lessons are there for the current reforms?

Understanding New Labour’s market reforms of the English NHS, edited by Nicholas Mays, Anna Dixon and Lorelei Jones, published by the Kings’ Fund.

Another book reached the shelves a few days ago. LSHTM graduate Nick Henwood and his wife Ros give an account of their experience living in Nepal. They expected to be “change agents” in the country, but found themselves changed forever by Nepal.

Changed Agents – Nine years in Nepal. By Nick and Ros Henwood, published by Grosvenor House Publishing Limited.
