Item description for Reform and Perspectives on Social Insurance: Lessons from the East and West (Studies in Employment and Social Policy Set) by Ming-Cheng Kuo, Hans F. Zacher & Hou-Sheng Chan...

The social security systems that, perhaps more than any other governmental programs, have characterized the development of industrial societies are under siege. On the threshold of the twenty-first century, the future of social insurance is uncertain; it may even be seriously threatened. In this important book, nine leading scholars probe deeply into the nature of social rights, trying to read the near future and locate the most meaningful and effective role that social insurance can play as today's new socioeconomic patterns develop. In-depth chapters analyse existing systems and recent and ongoing reforms in seven countries -- Germany, the United Kingdom, Sweden, the United States, Japan, Taiwan, and China. There is also a chapter on the European Union's work toward a harmonised scheme to match other programs of integration, and a chapter on the all-important interpenetration of social insurance and human rights. The authors clearly demonstrate that the unprecedented challenges faced by social insurance today arise not only from changes in the patterns of society, but also from lack of confidence and ideological prejudice on the part of both academia and public policy. As a major analysis of why and how a great milestone in human progress is faltering under contemporary pressures, this book is of enormous value. It deserves to be read and absorbed by all professionals in the field who want to use their knowledge and skill to ensure a future in which every man, woman, and child is provided with opportunity to live as full a life as possible. The essays in this book are based on papers first delivered at an international symposium held in Taipei in September 2000 under the auspices of the Center of Labor Law and Social Law of Chengchi University, with the support of several public and private agencies in Taiwan.

Recommendation for Granddaughter  Dec 8, 2002
My daughter has just entered Macalester College in St. Paul, MN. She has wanted to become a medical doctor since she was 13.

I have encouraged her to study molecular biology and computational biology as the best field to go into for the next 50 years of her life.

In 1968 my dad recommended that I go into computers, in order to be on the leading edge of the future throughout my working life. I followed my dad's advice.

I asked her what book she most wanted to read. She wanted a to find the best book on reforming the medical insurance because she believes that is the most important issue for the future. She is also interested in epidemeology.

I asked my dad to research the field of medical insurance and make a recommendation.

He recommended this book for my daughter. I have bought it for her and will make a followup recommendation once she has read the book.
