'In this book, with outstanding clarity, Ruud ter Meulen tackles a crucial, but complex and delicate issue, for both political and moral philosophy and policy-making in health care. … he offers a brilliant philosophical lesson that is also useful for his ultimate purpose: contextualising the concept of solidarity as he does, he enables us to see it as an answer to concrete issues and not as an ossified idea, inappropriate to deal with contemporary health care challenges.' Marie Gaille, EACME Newsletter
