  • Erratum
    • Abstract: [Erratum]In David Herzberg's article, "Entitled to Addiction': Pharmaceuticals, Race, and America's First Drug War," vol. 91, no. 3 (Fall 2017), pp. 586-623, an error occurs on p. 610. The error appears in the sentence that reads, "fatal barbiturate overdoses alone rose nearly fivefold between 1933 and 1953 (the per-capita rate rose fourfold), reaching a high of nearly eight people per hundred thousand population—a higher mark than prescription opioid deaths in 2014 during the twenty-first-century epidemic."Due to a calculation error, the per capita fatal barbiturate overdose rate in 1953 is incorrect. It was 0.7 per hundred thousand population, not nearly 8 per hundred thousand population. By 1965, the rate for ... Read More

  • Rethinking Private-Public Partnership in the Health Care Sector: The Case
           of Municipal Hospital affiliation
    • Abstract: How much "private" should there be in a "public" good'This is a question that has loomed in health care, long before the term "private-public partnership" appeared on the public policy horizon. But it is a challenging one to answer at the outset, beginning with the ambiguity of the core terms of debate. Social welfare provision, after all, has persistently defied a clean demarcation between the "public" and the "private." Health care was and is no exception. Indeed, it might well be the most prominent exemplar of the rule. Each day, for example, government dollars pour into public and private health care providers via reimbursement programs like Medicare and Medicaid. Academic research institutions, public and ...

  • "¡Viva La Clinica!": The United Farm Workers' Fight for Medical Care
    • Abstract: There was a "great celebration" at the monthly meeting of the United Farm Workers of Arizona in February 1971. The gala mood was not due to a successful strike or other victory in the fields. Instead, a union member named Margaret Rojas had "announced to the workers that she had received . . . checks to cover her recent hospitalization." An organizer reported to headquarters that these were the "first checks to arrive in Arizona" from the union's Robert F. Kennedy Medical Plan, and their impact was palpable: "Seeing is believing! I think some of the farmworkers' doubts vanished."1The United Farm Workers (UFW) led a movement to unionize the United States' most exploited workforce: the laborers who harvested the ... Read More

  • Our Doctors, Ourselves: Barbara Seaman and Popular Health Feminism in the
           1970s
    • Abstract: "Barbara Seaman seems in all other respects a genuinely nice person, but she does have this thing about gynecologists." So began a 1973 Los Angeles Times profile of the feminist journalist, who was promoting the paperback edition of her latest book, Free and Female: The New Sexual Role of Women. "The book includes a chapter on gynecology, so it took no arm-wrenching to get her talking on the subject," Seaman's interviewer noted as an aside to his readers. The article, "Author Labels Gynecologists 'Piggish, Puerile,'" included commentary on modern gynecology from Seaman that was both serious and, at times, quite colorful. She explained that gynecologists often made "vile comments," like "we're going to take out the ... Read More

  • Husbands' Hearts and Women's Health: Gender, Age, and Heart Disease in
           Twentieth-Century America
    • Abstract: "In medical circles, they call it the Hollywood Heart Attack," wrote Martha Weinman Lear in the New York Times in 2014.1 The "grimace of agony, the clutching of chest, sudden collapse, the whole purple-prose panoply."2 The journalist believed those would be the warning signs—the "paradigm, the norm, the way heart attacks are supposed to happen"—and what she observed when her husband collapsed thirty-four years prior.3 Like many women, she had spent decades palpating for lumps in her breasts, only to find the fist-sized organ beneath her ribcage would become her principal health concern. In 2012, nearly three hundred thousand American women died of heart disease, exceeding the number of deaths due to all forms of ... Read More

  • Life Embodied: The Promise of Vital Force in Spanish Modernity by Nicolás
           Fernández-Medina (review)
    • Abstract: Nicolás Fernández-Medina has written a thorough and much-needed treatment of vitalism in the history of Spanish culture. Most of the scholarship to date, as Fernández-Medina points out, has focused on the neovitalist movement that arose toward the end of the nineteenth century, and as a result there has been no attempt to analyze the multiple strands of vitalist thought that emerged and developed over the course of the modern period in Spain. Fernández-Medina's book does an admirable job of filling this gap. By means of a wide-ranging, interdisciplinary approach, Life Embodied traces the various manifestations of Spanish vitalism from the seventeenth century through the early twentieth century and thereby ...

  • Traditional Medicine in the Colonial Philippines 16th to the 19th Century
           by Maria Mercedes G. Planta (review)
    • Abstract: This work on traditional medicine in the Philippines during the Spanish colonial era makes an important contribution to understanding of traditional practices and especially of the sources and uses of herbal medicine in this area. In six chapters, the author gives an overview of native healing practices and the role of native healers, the ways in which these practices interacted with the Western medical system based on humoral pathology brought by the Spanish in the sixteenth century, and finally the fate of these interactions, particularly with regard to public health policy, following U.S. colonization of the islands. The text is well written and clear, based upon prominent primary and secondary sources.The ... Read More

           King (review)
    • Abstract: Steven King's new book on the medical components of England's poor relief system 1750–1834 represents the most extensively researched analysis of the subject to date. It significantly enhances our understanding of the medical services provided under the Old Poor Law.King brings together three major datasets. He explores the administrative records of 117 English parishes blessed with lengthy, surviving uninterrupted runs of data that allow for computation. These are augmented by the records of 146 communities where the operational data are rich but somewhat more fractured. Third, King compiled nearly 13,000 narratives by or about the poor primarily from letters, whether by the poor requesting relief, advocates ... Read More

  • Nurturing Indonesia: Medicine and Decolonisation in the Dutch East Indies
           by Hans Pols (review)
    • Abstract: This book illuminates the ambiguously positioned, yet very significant roles played by indigenous physicians and medical students in the making of modern Indonesia. Hans Pols explores the waxing and waning of their involvement in Indonesian politics during the Dutch East Indies, Japanese occupation, and independence periods. It has been pointed out that, as in other parts of the world, there were prominent indigenous physicians and scientists in Southeast Asia such as Jose Rizal in the Philippines who played a significant role in the nationalist movement, and there has been earlier literature on this relationship. Pols's study greatly adds to our understanding of this relationship, especially its complexity ... Read More

  • Diploma Mill: The Rise and Fall of Dr. John Buchanan and the Eclectic
           Medical College of Pennsylvania by David Alan Johnson (review)
    • Abstract: The heart of Diploma Mill is the engaging tale of a medical scoundrel in post–Civil War Philadelphia. Arriving from Scotland in the early 1850s, John Buchanan in 1860 joined the faculty of the Eclectic Medical College of Philadelphia (EMC), a school founded ten years prior, and soon became its dean. There were eight medical schools in Philadelphia in 1860 vying for students including two rival eclectic medical colleges. Sometime in the 1860s Buchanan began or greatly expanded the profitable practice of selling medical diplomas. In 1867 Buchanan obtained a charter for the American University of Philadelphia, ostensibly to train African Americans in medicine. (He courted newly enfranchised African Americans ... Read More

  • Tuberculosis in the Americas, 1870–1945: Beneath the Anguish in
           Philadelphia and Buenos Aires by Vera Blinn Reber (review)
    • Abstract: Contemporary historians are expected to put the local in conversation with the global, frequently a time-consuming and frustrating task. Vera Blinn Reber's Tuberculosis in the Americas, 1870–1945: Beneath the Anguish in Philadelphia and Buenos Aires, which synthesizes and distills a considerable amount of historical data into a concise and illuminating comparative study, is thus a welcome addition for those interested in the history of tuberculosis.Blinn Reber compares the actions and beliefs of patients, physicians, and governments in Buenos Aires and Philadelphia, two influential port cities in the Western Hemisphere. Her narrative is bookended by two trajectory-altering discoveries: the tubercle bacillus and the ... Read More

  • Medicine Women: The Story of the First Native American Nursing School by
           Jim Kristofic (review)
    • Abstract: This book tells the history of the Ganado Mission, in Ganado, Arizona. The mission, beginning in the 1870s, was supported by the Presbyterian Board of Foreign Missions, and sustained primarily by the energetic work of physician Clarence Salsbury. Although the book's title refers to the Sage Hospital nursing school, 1930–51, this is not the book's most important or predominant feature. Most of the book focuses on the conflicts and tensions between Presbyterian missionaries' attempts to convert the Navajo people to Christianity and the Navajo people's struggles to hold onto their culture.The book consists of thirty-five short chapters. There is an extensive bibliography as well as source notes. Kristofic found ... Read More

           1890s–1940s ed. by Jennifer J. Connor and Katherine Side (review)
    • Abstract: There are a handful of critical studies, biographies, journal articles, theses, and doctoral dissertations that explore aspects of the Grenfell Mission that brought health, education, and other services to northern Newfoundland and coastal Labrador. So what does an edited collection such as the one curated by Jennifer J. Connor and Katherine Side add to this literature' The short answer is quite a lot.Health and other social services were delivered through a patchwork of arrangements in Newfoundland and Labrador, which was independent of Canada until 1949. Health, education, and social services were all woefully underdeveloped or nonexistent. The Grenfell Mission, which became the International Grenfell Association ... Read More

  • Medical Imperialism in French North Africa: Regenerating the Jewish
           Community of Colonial Tunis by Richard C. Parks (review)
    • Abstract: Richard Parks' Medical Imperialism in French North Africa is about more than medicine—it is the historical journey of Jews in Tunis, from a Mizrahi and Sephardic community divided between the oldest indigenous Jewish population ("Twansa" in Tunisian colloquial) and the Tunisian Judeo-Italians originally from Livorno (the "Grana") to a unified Tunisian Jewish population seeking a new modern self. Tunisian Jews had to navigate the French protectorate administration, a cultural French "civilizing mission" of the metropolitan Alliance Israélite Universelle (AIU), and a muscular Zionism intent on recruiting North African Jews for regeneration in Israel. Parks argues that Tunis Jews embraced a neo-Lamarckian French ... Read More

  • Making Medicine a Business: X-ray Technology, Global Competition, and the
           Transformation of the Japanese Medical System, 1895–1945 by Pierre-Yves
           Donzé (review)
    • Abstract: In his monograph, Pierre-Yves Donzé analyzes the impact of X-ray equipment on the transformation of Japanese medicine into a business between 1895 and 1945. He argues that in pre–World War II Japan, the radiological device industry, doctors, and hospitals all played a decisive role in the shift. Japan's exceptionally competitive market resulted from a large number of small hospitals that competed by investing in compact and cheap X-ray instruments and employing radiologists to lure patients for profits. X-ray equipment manufacturers like Tokyo Electric, a Japanese partner of U.S.-based General Electric (GE), and Shimadzu worked closely with medical doctors, who sought to establish radiology as an autonomous ...

  • Intimate Communities: Wartime Healthcare and the Birth of Modern China,
           1937–1945 by Nicole Elizabeth Barnes (review)
    • Abstract: Nicole Barnes has written a fascinating history of Chinese health care through the critical lens of gender and emotions in modern China. Through a sophisticated analysis of archival materials, correspondences, fiction, memoirs, and speeches, Barnes argues for the centrality of women medical professionals in shaping wartime health care. Their experiences were bolstered and at times undermined by intense emotional labor, wartime contingencies, and Chinese Nationalist politics.Chapter 1 delineates how the masculine Chinese Nationalist state sought to control the health of citizens in the wartime capital of Chongqing through the heads of neighborhood associations, police officers, and sanitation men. Chapter 2 argues ... Read More

  • After Eunuchs: Science, Medicine, and the Transformation of Sex in Modern
           China by Howard Chiang (review)
    • Abstract: In the past few years, Howard Chiang has edited or co-edited an astounding number of scholarly volumes on topics ranging from psychiatry and sexuality in China to Sinophone studies. In his first single-authored monograph, Chiang brings together these various intellectual projects to chart a genealogy of sex in Republican-era China and 1950s Taiwan. Chiang's goal in After Eunuchs is to demonstrate how sexual knowledge became a crucial element in Chinese modernity. As he argues, the historical transformations of twentieth-century China coevolved with changing conceptions of sex and gender. Progressing from Confucian kinship relations to a more scientific and naturalized vision of sex, these transformations in sexual ... Read More

  • Polio Across the Iron Curtain: Hungary's Cold War with an Epidemic by
           Dóra Vargha (review)
    • Abstract: Dóra Vargha's well-documented and clearly argued monograph is a welcome addition to the historiography on polio outside the United States and, more generally, to the history of medicine and public health in Socialist Eastern Europe. The book draws on primary sources from thirteen archives and libraries, including Hungarian repositories, an Albert B. Sabin collection, World Health Organization records, and International Committee of the Red Cross documents. It incorporates eyewitness accounts from fifteen people interviewed by Vargha. It offers a very interesting analysis of the intense coverage of polio by the Hungarian press. Last but not least, it weaves in information and arguments from a multitude of secondary ... Read More

  • Strange Trips: Science, Culture, and the Regulation of Drugs by Lucas
           Richert (review)
    • Abstract: In Strange Trips, Lucas Richert provides a fascinating, engagingly written, and broadly scoped introduction into the complex history of a number of drugs as well as several key themes in the history of modern drug regulation. Focusing on North America with briefer forays into the United Kingdom, the book examines the debates surrounding the medical legitimacy of a number of contested medicines—or entire drug categories—as it aims to "move beyond examining substances in silos" (p. 4). The focus is on charting how drugs have crossed the boundary between legitimate medicine and demonized narcotic—or dangerous quack remedy—over their lifecycles, in different ways, and in different countries.Strange Trips is broken into ...
