"Health, Disease and Society in Europe, 1800-1930" provides readers with unrivaled access to a comprehensive range of sources on major themes in nineteenth and early twentieth-century medicine. The book covers issues such as the changing role of the hospital, disease, colonial and imperial medicine, women, war, the emergence of modern surgery, welfare and the state, and the growth of asylum. Extracts from contemporary writings vividly illustrate key aspects of medical thought and practice, while a selection of classic historical research and up-to-date work in the field gives a sense of our understanding of medical history. Introductions make the sources accessible to the student as well as the interested general reader.
