"Well written, with a very useful bibliographical essay and index, this book can be recommended for medical and general readers alike." -- Guenter B. Risse, M.D., Ph.D., Journal of the American Medical Association.
"The best brief history of health care in America since Richard H. Shryock's classic survey appeared over thirty years ago." -- Ronald L. Numbers, University of Wisconsin-Madison.
Well written, with a very useful bibliographical essay and index, this book can be recommended for medical and general readers alike. It should also quickly find its way into the classroom, both at the high school and college levels... The author has carefully woven health-related events and developments into the tapestry of American history, exploring them in relation to geography and climate, culture and institutions, politics and economics. -- Guenter B. Risse, M.D. * Journal of the American Medical Association * To cover the history of medicine in America from the earliest European settlements to the present day in 159 pages seems a risky enough undertaking, yet James Cassedy here carries it off admirably... It is clearly written; its generalizations are firmly stated; and its scope is broad. -- Anne Hardy * Medical History *
