Dear Academic,
Im delighted to present our History of Medicine catalogue.
Our new publishing in this area continues our commitment
to innovative scholarship across the discipline, from the
social history of medicine and health, to histories of both
mental and physical illness and medical science in theory
and in practice.
The Studies for the Society for the Social History of
Medicine series celebrates a wealth of new titles on a wide
range of topics. Highlights include A Medical History of
Skin (p.3) and Disabled Children (p.5).
We are also very pleased to be publishing titles which
approach the history of particular health issues from a
cultural angle, such as Age and Identity in Eighteenth-
Century England (p.6), Picturing Womens Health (p.8)
and Breast Cancer in the Eighteenth Century (p.8).
Of particular interest among our new primary source
collections will be Depression and Melancholy,
16601800 (p.10) and The History of Suicide in England,
16501850 (p.10)
I welcome new proposals for monographs, essay
collections, and primary source collections on any topic in
the history of medicine, so do please get in touch to discuss
your research and project ideas.

Editors: Soraya Boudia and
Nathalie Jas
The number of substances potentially
dangerous to our health and
environment is constantly increasing.
Though governments have inroduced
measures to protect us from this
rising threat, the growth in industry
and new developments in science and
technology mean that we are at greater
risk of exposure to toxic materials
than at any other time in history. The
papers in this volume examine the
concurrent rise of pollutants and the

The Care of Older People:
England and Japan, A Comparative Study
Mayumi Hayashi
Across the globe, populations are
getting older. Britain and Japan
are examples of two rapidly ageing
societies, and their governments face
increasing challenges in how to deal
with this situation. Based on extensive
archival research and oral testimony,
Hayashi sets policy and practice at
the national, regional and local levels
in their historical contexts, offering a
unique comparison of the evolution
of modern residential care in England
and Japan.
Hayashi has written the frst
comparative study of the urgent issue
of the residential care of older people
in Britain and Japan. ... she valuably
dispels the deeply entrenched belief that
older people are much more respected
and cared for in Asian countries such as
Japan, than in western countries such
as Britain. Pat Thane, Kings College

Child Guidance in Britain,
John Stewart
Stewart presents a history of child
guidance in Britain from its origins
in the years after the First World War
until the consolidation of the Welfare
State. Concepts widely used in this
guidance also played a part in broader
social and cultural perceptions of what
constituted a childs healthy emotional
and psychological development. This
is the frst study of child guidance in
this period and makes a signifcant
contribution to the historiography.

Biologics, A History of Agents
Made From Living Organisms
in the Twentieth Century
Editors: Alexander von Schwerin,
Heiko Stoff and Bettina Wahrig
The use of biologics drugs made
from living organisms has raised
specifc scientifc, industrial, medical
and legal issues. Examining the
history of biologics necessitates the
study of the pharmaceutical industry
from a commercial and scientifc
perspective. The essays contained in
this collection each deal with a case
study of a biologic substance, or group
of biologics, and its use in a European
location during the twentieth century.

Modern German Midwifery,
Lynne A Fallwell
Between the late eighteenth and
the early twentieth century, the
industrialized world experienced a
transition in birth practices from
the holistic wise woman midwife to
the male medical specialist. While
in many countries this gendered
struggle led to a separation of
midwifery from the rest of modern
medicine, in Germany new standards
of healthcare were embraced, leading
to a more integrated system in which
midwives remained an essential part
of childbirth. Fallwells study explores
this transition and sets it in its wider
socio-historical context, including the
role of print culture and the changes
that occurred before, during and after
the Nazi regime.

Bacteria in Britain,
Rosemary Wall
Focusing on the years between the
identifcation of bacteria and the
production of antibiotic medicine,
Wall presents a study into how
bacteriology has affected both clinical
practice and public knowledge. A
series of case studies are used to
demonstrate how physicians began to
use bacteriology as a diagnostic tool
and how the public was compensated
for outbreaks of disease. Anthrax and
typhoid are examined in detail and
issues of sanitation, local politics and
public health are addressed.

The Politics of Hospital
Provision in Early Twentieth-
Century Britain
Barry M Doyle
Focusing on Leeds, Middlesborough
and Sheffeld in the early years of the
twentieth century, Doyle examines
the role of local and national politics
on hospitals. In the years before
the formation of the Welfare State,
access to hospital care was limited
by economic and social factors which
varied from place to place. Ultimately,
Doyle argues that social and economic
diversity created a number of models
for future health care which rested
on a combination of voluntary and
municipal provision.

Institutionalizing the Insane
in Nineteenth-Century
Anna Shepherd
The nineteenth century brought
an increased awareness of mental
disorder, epitomized in the Asylum
Acts of 1808 and 1845. The desire to
contain or cure the afficted led to an
unprecedented growth of asylums
across England and Wales. Shepherd
looks at two very different institutions
to provide a nuanced account of the
nineteenth-century mental health
system. Issues explored include the
patient population, staff, treatment
and therapeutic outcomes, as well as
an interrogation of the accepted roles
of class and gender.

Desperate Housewives,
Neuroses and the Domestic

Ali Haggett
Many recent studies have seen
womens mental health issues in the
aftermath of the Second World War as
being a direct consequence of a lack
of opportunity and the banality of a
domestic lifestyle. Haggett suggests
that many women in the 1950s and
1960s led satisfying lives and that
gender roles, while very different, were
often seen as equal.

Age and Identity in
Eighteenth-Century England
Helen Yallop
Aging is a fundamental aspect of the
human condition, yet different eras
have understood it in very different
ways and suggested very different
means of defning, measuring and
improving it. Yallop looks at how
people in eighteenth-century England
understood the lifelong process of
growing older, in order to reconstruct
a set of ideas about age, bodies,
identity and change. Advances in
science and medicine at this time
meant that scholars and doctors could
investigate why the body got older,
how aging was experienced and what
the aging body signifed in society.

bodies as a teaching tool increased
exponentially. Hutton looks at

The Politics of Reproduction
in Ottoman Society,
Glhan Balsoy
Epidemics, migration and territorial
losses led to population decline in
early nineteenth-century Turkey.
In response, Ottoman elites began
a programme of population growth,
based on increased birth rate and
reduced infant mortality. Three
policies were initiated to achieve this:
the professionalization of midwives, a
ban on abortion and greater medical
care during pregnancy. Balsoy uses
previously untapped archival sources
to examine these developments,
arguing that these changes caused
reproduction to become a political

Sex, Identity and
Hermaphrodites in Iberia,
Richard Cleminson and
Francisco Vzquez Garca
Early modern European thought held
that men and women were essentially
the same, with social forces creating
their differences. Such a view made
the existence of hermaphrodites easy
to accept. During the seventeenth
century, medical and legal arguments
began to turn against this one sex
model, with hermaphroditism seen
as a medieval superstition. This
book traces this change in Iberia in
comparison to the earlier shift in
thought in northern Europe, and with
concurrent ideas in Latin America.

Picturing Womens Health
Editors: Kate Scarth, Francesca
Scott and Ji Won Chung
Womens lives changed considerably
over the course of the long nineteenth
century. As new roles and behaviours
became available to them, the ways
in which they were represented also
increased. The essays in this collection
examine women in diverse roles;
mother, socialite, prostitute, celebrity,
medical practitioner and patient. The
wide range of commentators allows
a diverse picture of womens health
in this period. Findings are discussed
within the historical, medical,
sociological, literary and art historical
contexts of the period to make a truly
interdisciplinary study.

Policing Prostitution,
18561886: Deviance, Surveillance
and Morality
Catherine Lee
Prostitution was rife in the cities of
Victorian Britain. Focusing on the
ports, dockyards and garrison towns
of Kent, this study examines the social
and economic factors that could cause
a woman to turn to prostitution, and
how such women were policed. Lee
demonstrates that nineteenth-century
prostitution is best understood as part
of the wider context of policing and
urban control.

Medicine and Modernism:
A Biography of Henry Head
L S Jacyna
This is the frst in-depth study of the
English neurologist and polymath
Sir Henry Head (18611940). Head
bridged the gap between science and
the arts. He was a published poet who
had close links with such fgures as
Thomas Hardy and Siegfried Sassoon,
whilst his research into the nervous
system and the relationship between
language and the brain broke new
ground. Jacyna argues that these
advances must be contextualised
within wider Modernist debates about
perception and language.

discipline and practice. Surgeons

practitioners and set themselves
apart from the unspecialized, hack
barber-surgeons of early modernity.
The essays in this collection focus on

Rhyming Reason: The Poetry of
Romantic-Era Psychologists
Michelle Faubert
Faubert focuses on a little-known
group of psychologist-poets who grew
out of the liberal literary-medical
culture of the Scottish Enlightenment.
They used poetry as an accessible
form to communicate emerging
psychological, cultural and moral
ideas concepts echoed by so many
canonical Romantic poets that we now
think of them as distinct features of

Tea and the Tea-Table in
Eighteenth-Century England
General Editor: Markman Ellis
In the eighteenth century tea and
coffee were both recent arrivals to
English culture and commodities
of conspicuous and luxurious
consumption. Unlike coffee however,
tea retained its luxury status its high
cost and associated rarity making
it a favourite drink at Court. It was
condemned by the Methodist preacher
John Wesley, who saw the increase
in tea-drinking as the corrupting
infuence of consumerism on the poor,
but celebrated by many others who
endorsed the drinks benefcial effect
on health.
This four-volume, reset collection
covers: tea in natural history
and medical writing; literary
representations of tea-drinking;
tea, commerce and the East India
Company; and the politics of tea.

Eighteenth-Century British
Editor: Pam Lieske
Scholars of the British Enlightenment
who study obstetrical history
traditionally focus on the rise of
the male-midwife and competition
between the sexes. By reprinting in
facsimile primary texts on eighteenth-
century midwifery and childbirth,
this comprehensive twelve-volume
collection gives readers a much
deeper, more nuanced understanding
of midwives, midwifery students and
women in labour.
The set comprises pamphlets,
treatises, lectures for midwifery
students, texts on the establishment
of lying-in hospitals, and catalogues
of obstetrical apparatuses collected
by male-midwives. Important themes
include medical developments, freaks
of nature, womens conduct and the
legal and societal implications of birth
and motherhood.
These books should be part of every
respectable library dealing with the
history of medicine in general and of
midwifery or obstetrics in particular.
