Book Description Pelican / Penguin Books, Great Britain, 1973. Softcover. Book Condition: Good. Dust Jacket Condition: No Dust Jacket. Richard M. Titmuss s "The Gift Relationship" has long been acknowledged as one of the classic texts on social policy. Honored by the "New York Times" as one of the ten most important books of the year when it first appeared in 1970, Titmuss s "The Gift Relationship" is even more topical now in an age of AIDS and changing health care policy. A seemingly straightforward comparative study of blood donating in the United States and Britain, the book elegantly raises profound economic, political, and philosophical questions. Titmuss contrasts the British system of reliance on voluntary donors to the American one in which the blood supply is largely in the hands of for-profit enterprises and shows how a nonmarket system based on altruism is more effective than one that treats human blood as another commodity.This updated edition contains the original text along with new chapters that: consider the relevance of Titmuss s arguments to the AIDS and current health care crises;outline recent developments in blood donation and transfusion systems;examine the systems for human milk donation; andassess the response to the original edition and make the case for its continuing relevance today.At a time when health and welfare systems are under sustained attack from many quarters, this new edition of "The Gift Relationship" is essential reading for everyone interested in social policy and the future of our society.
