Summary
By analyzing constitutional powers and limits, Gostin vividly shows how law can become a potent tool for the realization of a healthier and safer population. Public Health Law creates an intellectual framework for the field of public health -- as distinct from related fields that center on personal health care delivery and regulation -- and supports that framework with rich material illustrating the intellectual, scientific, political, and ethical issues involved
