9780198227939: Medical Care and the General Practitioner 1750-1850

Unlike most histories of the medical profession between 1750 and 1850, which focus on a small handful of famous doctors and their discoveries, this book concentrates on the neglected but far larger group of rank and file practitioners: the surgeon-apothecaries of the late 18th century and the general practitioners of the early 19th century. Delving into an array of manuscript sources, Loudon examines their social and economic status, their background and training, their scientific methods and medical challenges, and their patients and pay-scales. He demonstrates that they actually faced unparalleled intraprofessional rivalry in an overcrowded profession during these years -- the effects of which are still seen in the structure of Britain's medical establishment today.

About the Author:

Irvine Loudon is a freelance historian of medicine.

Review:


"Goes beyond existing monographs on the topic and should occupy a major niche in the history of medicine. It is meticulously researched and documented....Strongly recommended for libraries having collections in British history or the history of medicine."--Choice


"A formidably well marshalled array of fact. Painstakingly researched and pleasantly written, the book traces with impressive erudition the evolution of general practice."--British Medical Journal


"Fascinating....A work of very considerable scholarship.--The Lancet
