It has to be stressed that 'Reflections on the management of the national health service: An American' looks at incentives to efficiency in health services management in the UK is not just the result of a quick glance at the National Health Service during a flying visit.

Professor Enthoven has known Britain over a long period, having been a Rhodes Scholar and as 'one of America's leading experts on the economics of health care' his reading and scholarship is extensive, supplemented too by talks with a number of people who could reasonably be included currently among experts on health affairs and policies in the United Kingdom.
