The first in a projected "series" of nine volumes that will draw on the social sciences and the social history of medicine to analyze the nature, status, and practice of medical knowledge, deliberately keeping the personal experience of those affected in plain view. Nine contributions look closely at medical knowledge and discuss tuberculosis, blood, hysteria, the doctor-patient interaction, and health and healing in an age of science.

"After a considerable period, we are at last presented with a introductory text which does not patronise the undergraduate student with over-simple explanations nor overwhelm with theory and specialist jargon. Seale and Pattison provide an interesting, well written and imaginatively illustrated book, abounding in historical drawings andphotographs. It is full of lively discussions and offers thoroughly useful information about some of the many forms of medical knowledge and medical practice." - A.N.Z.J.S.
