Wasting Away is a provocative text that examines and assesses the Canadian health care system. This seven-chapter book explores the development of the Canadian health care system and breaks the analysis down into accessible units: who provides (the institutions and the people); who pays (funding sources); and who decides (public, private, and patients). The concluding chapter sums up the winners and losers in this system. A new Introduction by the authors thoroughly updates the subject.

Pat Armstrong received her PhD and MA from Carleton University . She is currently a full professor on faculty at York University’s Sociology Department.

Hugh Armstrong earned his PhD in sociology from the University of Montreal and his MA from Carleton University. He is currently an Associate Professor in the School of Social Work at Carleton.
