'Two of the smartest health law scholars of their generation present a unique take on healthcare discrimination. Healthism is a refreshing examination of both explicit and implicit discrimination mapped to a broad array of legal doctrines. Breaking with other types of discrimination such as racism or sexism, the authors resist an absolutist approach and create a cleverly nuanced approach to differential treatments by suggesting an original and intriguing rubric.' Nicolas P. Terry, Indiana University Robert H. McKinney School of Law
