There has been a growing recognition of the importance of mathematical and statistical methods in the history of medicine, particularly in those areas where statistical methods are a sine qua non such as epidemiology and randomised clinical trials. Despite this expanding scholarly interest, the development of the mathematical and statistical technologies in the biological sciences has not been examined systematically. This collection of essays aims to provide a broader overview of this field, and to explore the use of these with the use of these quantitative technologies in medical and clinical cultures from the seventeenth to the twentieth centuries.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"All these chapters have merit in their own right, and the book also makes a contribution to a sphere of medical history which is greater than the sum of its parts. [...] the real merit might be that many of the lessons that spring from its pages are portable to many other debates." - in: The Social History of Medicine, Vol. 18, No. 1, 2005 "...a useful contribution to the burgeoning literature on medical quantification." - in: The Bulletin of the History of Medicine, Vol. 78, 2004 "...this is a very valuable addition to the library of works on the origins and development of medical statistics." - in: The Canadian Bulletin of Medical History, Vol. 21, No. 2, 2004
