About Professor Marmor
Theodore Ted Marmor's scholarship primarily concerns welfare state politics and policy in North America and Western Europe. He particularly emphasizes the major spending programs, which is reflected in the second edition of The Politics of Medicare Aldine de Gruyter, 2000 and the book written with colleagues Mashaw and Harvey in the early l990s, America's Misunderstood Welfare State Basic Books, l992. The author or co-author of eleven books, Marmor has published over a hundred articles in a wide range of scholarly journals, as well as being a frequent op-ed contributor to U.S. and Canadian newspapers. Ted regularly writes op-ed essays for the Philadelphia Inquirer with long-time Yale law colleague, Jerry Mashaw.
A collection of his recent articles appeared in 2007: Fads Fallacies and Foolishness in Medical Management and Policy (World Scientific Publishing.) In 2005, the Journal of Comparative Policy Analysis chose his jointly authored article “Comparative Perspectives and Policy Learning in the World of Health Care,” with Richard Freeman and Kieke Okma, as its best article of the year. Yale University Press in 2009 published his co-edited book, Comparative Studies and the Politics of Modern Medical Care and in the summer of 2012 published Politics, Health and Health Care: Selected Essays, co-authored with Rudolf Klein.
