MEDIA REVIEWS
Dr. DeJong in an eminent authority on the history of the Indian Health Service (IHS). Plagues, Politics, and Policy is the gold standard for the chronological history of IHS, from the Transfer Act to the Obama Administration. It is a must read for those interested in how the Federal Government has treated Native Americans in their health care. -- Bill Katzel, Retired USPHS
Far from a simple chronicle, Plagues, Politics, and Policy makes a bold argument.... With DeJong providing a helpful and telling overview of the successes and limitations of federal health care for American Indians and Alaskan Natives. * Wicazo Sa Review "Red Pencil Review" *
