A History of Western Medicine, Disease and Public Health, vol. 2 (Since 1700)
Conditions of Use:
Remix and Share
Rating

This textbook provides a contextualized approach to a Western civilization historical survey course, focusing on the modern history of medicine in Europe, North America, and the colonial world from 1700 to the present. The textbook emphasizes how disease classifications and medical and sanitation practices are framed within their social and cultural contexts, and how ideas about bodies, disease, disability, health, and healing have been associated historically with such factors as race and ethnicity, religion, social class, and gender. Some major themes include diverse perspectives and conflicts in the progress and triumph of modern medical science and the identification of historical patterns in modern medical identities, practices, issues and controversies.

The book seeks to develop historical awareness of major events and ideas that have shaped the evolution of Western medical and public health practices in the modern era as well as ideas about disease and disability, and to enhance critical thinking and writing skills to engage in the analysis of historical and contemporary issues.

Chapter files of this book are also available in PDF format in the CSCC Hub.
