Praeger Publishers,
Pub. Date:
Libby (political science, U. of North Florida) argues that government scapegoating of medical doctors for the out-of-control costs of health care and the failed "war on drugs" has become a widespread phenomenon in the United States, resulting in numerous unfair investigations and prosecutions that threatens the quality of American medicine. He documents cases in the public record where doctors have allegedly been prosecuted and giving harsh punishments for simple billing mistakes or for good faith prescriptions of pain medications and patient referrals.
