9789766401771: On the Treatment And Management of the More Common West-india Diseases, 1750-1862

This work bring together in one volume a number of late-eighteenth-century monographs (the period known as the Age of Reason) on the diagnosis and treatment of diseases in African and creole slaves in the English-speaking Caribbean. These works have been almost forgotten, but they are of importance to many scholars, and Hutson provides a fully annotated text which explains archaic terminology, makes medical, botanical and Latin terminology accessible to non-specialists in those fields, and provides useful explanations of the eighteenth-century medical concepts.

About the Author:

James Grainger is the review editor of "Quill & Quire" and has written for the "Toronto Star" and "Canadian Hockey Magazine," He has been a books commentator on CBC Radio One, CBC Newsworld, and Book Television. His memoir "The Last Hippie" appeared in the anthology "AWOL: Tales for Travel-Inspired Minds," He lives in Toronto, Ontario.

Review:

"This volume will provide a treasury of source material for the study of medical history in the Caribbean. It comes 250 years after Hughes, Hillary, Moseley and Grainger were first published, yet so much of their writing resonates today. We in the University of the West Indies, and students of medical history everywhere, must be grateful to Dr Hutson, who, like Dr Grainger before him, has taken 'liberal pains in the Notes...to enlarge knowledge of the medicinal...plants of the West Indies'."
