About this title

Synopsis:

This book examines the relationship between medicine and the media in 1960's Britain, when the first wave of heart transplants were as much media as medical events and marked a decisive period in post-war history. Public trust in their doctors was significantly undermined, and medicine was held publicly to account as never before.

About the Author:

AYESHA NATHOO is a Research Fellow at Clare Hall, University of Cambridge, UK, and a member of the Department of History and Philosophy of Science. Her research interests include history of modern medicine, science communication, medical humanitarianism, and postwar international health.
