9789042022720: British Military and Naval Medicine, 1600-1830 (Clio Medica)

Standing armies and navies brought with them military medical establishments, shifting the focus of disease management from individuals to groups. Prevention, discipline, and surveillance produced results, and career opportunities for physicians and surgeons. All these developments had an impact on medicine and society, and were in turn influenced by them. The essays within examine these phenomena, exploring the imperial context, nursing and medicine in Britain, naval medicine, as well as the relationship between medicine, the state and society. British Military and Naval Medicine challenges the notion that military medicine was, in all respects, 'a good thing'. The so-called monopoly of military medicine and the authoritarian structures within the military were complex and, at times, successfully contested. Sometimes changes were imposed that cannot be characterised as improvements. British Military and Naval Medicine also points to opportunities for further research in this exciting field of study.

Review:

"British Military and Naval Medicine" is thus an important contribution to medical, naval and military history, one which increases our understanding of the impact of maritime exploration and naval service on sailors and on wider society. in: "International Journal of Maritime History," Vol. XX, No. 1 (June 2008), 429 431
[T]his collection has to be seen as a welcome addition to the literature, being of interest as much to the general public as to the academic reader. As well as providing a good introduction to a broad range of topics in military and naval medicine in the period concerned, it usefully indicates areas for further research, with a key strength lying in the abundant endnote referencing of secondary and archival sources. in: "Wellcome History," Issue 39, Winter 2008, 21-22
[T]hese essays contribute to our knowledge of the details of British medical practice during wartime as well as during peace, and establish that the relationship between civilian and naval or military medicine is closer than often assumed a well-considered collection, demonstrating the broad scope of military and naval medicine during a fundamental period of British warfare. in: "Social History of Medicine" 2009 22(3): 629-63
The essays build on those findings and highlight areas for future research. there can be no doubt that readers will find much material here to inform their own conclusions in: "Medical History," 54 (2010), 410 411"
