MEDIA REVIEWS
"As with others in the series, this title does a thorough job of covering broad health topics in a particular time period. High school and college students requiring reference material on the history of health and wellness for different eras will be well served by this set." - Booklist
"This particular volume accomplishes the daunting task of describing the complexity of health and wellness and disease in nineteenth-century America. . . . This is not just a medical history book. This is a book filled with stories that describe the harrowing lives and deaths, particularly of white Americans, African Americans, and Native Americans. . . . Health and Wellness in 19th Century America could be a useful source for academic libraries in health and medicine, psychology, history, religion, Native American studies, African American studies, women's studies, and many other interdisciplinary courses." - ARBA
"This book is an excellent introduction to the evolving state of health care in the U.S. and is most useful to those studying American history, women's history, and history of medicine." - Choice
