The Therapeutic Revolution : Essays in the Social History of American Medicine: Essays on the Social History of American Medicine
by Vogel, M J & Rosenberg, C E (Eds)

Overview -

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.
