In the second half of the 19th century, Paris became an international center for neurological studies largely because of Jean-Martin Charcot and his Salpetriere School. Charcot was named Professor of Diseases of the Nervous System at the University of Paris in 1882, and thus helped institutionalize neurology as a medical specialty. By then he had already published widely and had assembled a team of research specialists and students who approached the study of the nervous system through the celebrated methode anatomo-clinique that correlated specific neurological signs with discrete lesions in the central nervous system. Pushing beyond the bounds of anatomical study, Charcot went on to study hysteria, attracting both scientific and social notoriety.
This book provides the best account of the life and contributions of Jean-Martin Charcot. It gives a fascinating picture of the man and his milieu, and clearly defines his role in establishing the new medical specialty of clinical neurology.

About the Author:

Christopher G. Goetz is at Rush University. Michael Bonduelle is at University of Paris.

Review:


"The authors...are recognized experts in the history of French neurology...Their collaboration has produced a superb book, the most comprehensive and authoritative work to date on Charcot and his time....Those with an interest in neuroscience or medical history who venture into its pages will not be able to put it down."--The New England Journal of Medicine


"This excellent book surveys Charcot's life and career. The three authors have melded their clinical and historical talents to relate Charcot to the France of his time. This work is recommended to anyone interested in the early development of clinical neurology."-JAMA


"A seamlessly woven portrait of a man and his age that at last does full justice to the sitter and his major contributions to neurology and psychiatry....Wherever future studies of Charcot and his works may lead them, historical scholars will remain deeply indebted to Drs. Goetz, Bonduelle, and Gelfand for having provided a definitive account of his life and a penetrating evaluation of his importance for the development of modern neurology and psychiatry."--Journal of Nervous and Mental Disease


"[Authored] by an international triumvirate of well known medical historians...Very well written, organized, and illustrated."--Journal of the History of the Behavioral Sciences


"The authors comprise a fortunate combination of an American neurologist with strong historical interests, a French neurologist with similar credentials, and a professional historian of medicine. Their use of previously unworked primary sources is prodigious."--Samuel H. Greenblatt, Neurosurgery


"Here is an amazing book. Amazing because, translated from the English, it has all the allure of a French work of supreme craftmanship. Amazing, moreover, because of the erudition and the intimate knowledge of French society in the XIXth century, of which the authors have shown proof."--Revue de neurologie


"Crowns one stage in the maturation of Charcot studies....The book is praiseworthy....It is much better than most medical biographies and hugely superior to most doctor-authored biographies."--Journal of the History of Medicine


"In the grand tradition of Anglo-Saxon biographies...A needed and completely successful work."--L'Evolution Psychiatriaque


"It reads with real pleasure throughout...Brings to life [Charcot] with all his complexities and allows the reader to better comprehend him in comparison to his contemporaries."--Cahiers Goncourt


"A remarkable book, thoroughly conscientious and engrossing at the same time...an intellectual biography....Charcot has many illustrations about the neurologist's life, as well as by him, which add notably to the success of the text....The authors, two neurologists and one historian, have succeeded in collaborating seamlessly..."--Canadian Bulletin of Medical History
