This book is an effort to describe and critically analyse the recent experience of various European countries and discuss the dilemmas and challenges that confront health policy and policy-makers in this period of time and geopolitical setting, providing concrete evidence from various countries.

The book shows how the varying political traditions in the developed world—social democratic, Christian democratic, conservative, and liberal traditions—have affected populations’ health and quality of life in the western democracies.
