MEDIA REVIEWS

'For over two decades now, the idea of a medical marketplace has been a vital shaping influence on historians seeking to understand the nature of health provision in pre-modern societies. Medicine and the Market in England and its Colonies, c.1450- c.1850 provides a splendid critical re-evaluation of the concept. Suggestive, intelligently written and based on primary research across a wide field, this is a volume which no historian of medicine and no specialist of early modern England can afford to be without.' - Professor Colin Jones, Queen Mary, University of London

'Individually the essays make striking contributions to the literature, and collectively mark a considerable leap forward in analysing the medical marketplace over a long time frame. My students have been clamouring for such a volume for many years.' - Professor Hilary Marland, Centre for the History of Medicine, University of Warwick, UK
