    Health Care in the Soviet Union and Eastern Europe (1976) examines the systems of health care in the Communist countries of the Eastern Bloc. Many enjoyed comprehensive free health care, established with the Communist takeovers and transition to planned economies, as they moved from an agrarian to an industrialised system. This book traces their beginnings and development, and offers comparisons between each of them as well as with the West.
