520    This multifaceted book examines the free market reform of 
       the Chinese healthcare system in the 1980s and the more 
       collectivist or socialist counter-reforms that have been 
       implemented since 2009 to remedy some of the problems 
       introduced by marketization. The book is based on an 
       ethnographical study in a Chinese county from 2011 to 2012,
       which investigated local people's experience of healthcare
       reforms and the various ways in which they have adapted 
       their own behavior to the constraints and opportunities 
       introduced by these reforms. It provides a vivid depiction
       of the morality and emotionality of people's experiences 
       of the Chinese healthcare system and the myriad 
       frustrations and sometimes desperation it induces not only
       among patients with significant health problems and their 
       families, but also healthcare practitioners caught between
       their desire to do right by their patients and the 
       penalties they personally incur if they do not adhere to 
       institutionalized cost-saving measures. The people's 
       experiences within China's health sector presented reflect
       many similar experiences in the wider Chinese society. The
       book is thus a valuable resource for researchers and 
       graduate students interested in China's healthcare reforms
       and scholars concerned with issues of contemporary Chinese
