New on Early View: Review of Ruth Horowitz’s “In the Public Interest” #sssi #sociology #medical

In her book “In the Public Interest” Ruth Horowitz examines how medical licensing and disciplinary boards work in the USA. Based on participant observations as a member of two boards and fieldwork at two other boards Horowitz illuminates how doctors are dealt with whose practices have given the boards reason for concern. Ruth Macdonald reviewed Horowitz’s “wonderful book” and hopes for a wide readership as it is important also for the public to know about the important work of licensing and disciplinary boards that have recently been subject critical attention by the media.
