Although the physicians and surgeons of eighteenth-century Germany have attracted previous scholarly inquiry, little is known about their day-to-day activities―and even less about the ways in which those activities fit into the economic, political, and social structures of the time. In this groundbreaking work, Mary Lindemann brings together the scholarly traditions of the history of structures, mentalities, and everyday life to shed light on this complex relationship.

Opening with a discussion of the interplay of state and society in the independent German state of Braunschweig-Wolfenbüttel, Lindemann explains how medical policy was "made" at all levels. She describes the striking array of healers active in the eighteenth century: from physicians to all those consulted in medical situations―friends and neighbors, executioners and barber-surgeons, bathmasters, midwives, and apothecaries. She surveys the available vital statistics and more personal narrative accounts, such as reports on the "Increase and Decrease of the Inhabitants," and medical topographies. Lindemann also examines the process of becoming a patient and explores the effects of the social, economic, political, and cultural milieus on how medicine was practiced in the everyday world of the village, the neighborhood, and the town.

From the Publisher:

"Mary Lindemann has built up, over the last decade, an enviable reputation as a social historian of Germany and as a historian of German medicine. Many scholars have been looking forward to a book-length account from her of medicine and health, doctors and patients, in eighteenth-century Germany, and the present [volume] . . . exceeds all reasonable expectations."—Roy Porter, Wellcome Institute for the History of Medicine

"Using historical sources, never applied so assiduously to the history of medicine, the author has offered insights and conclusions that will probably engage a generation of students . . . Historians of medicine may learn much from this volume, and the degree to which researchers respond to its challenges could well determine the future development of a broader interest in medical history."—History

About the Author:
