Health, disease and society in Europe, 1800-1930 provides readers with unrivalled 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 both to the student and the interested general reader. The extracts are arranged by topic and thus complement the essays in the companion volume Medicine transformed: Health, disease and society in Europe, 1800-1930.
