Ezekiel J. Emanuel is Vice Provost for Global Initiatives and Chair of the Department of Medical Ethics and Health Policy at the University of Pennsylvania. An oncologist and author of nine books on medical ethics and healthcare, he previously served as a special adviser for health policy in the Obama administration. He is also the author of Reinventing American Health Care and a memoir about his illustrious brothers. Emanuel's new book profiles 11 disparate countries' healthcare systems and shows how the U.S.-despite spending far more than any other nation-doesn't come close to having the best.
