Synopsis:

This book is not about one glorious triumph after another, nor is it a series of complaints about doctors and hospitals. Rather, these essays examine American medicine within its context, sensitive to the role of medical knowledge, practitioners, and institutions in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. The selections not only cover general considerations of the social and cultural context in which American medicine developed but also analyze the relationship between science and medicine, the development of mental hospitals, nursing, and health insurance.

Review:

"Ten fascinating essays. . . . Students in the health fields, history, and the social sciences would all find something of interest in this volume."—Choice



"Emphasizes . . . the complexities and subtleties of the historical dimension. . . . Demonstrates that the field of medical history has attained a new level of growth and maturity."—Journal of American History
