A project of the Helen Caldicott Foundation and co-sponsored by Physicians for Social Responsibility, this gathering was a response to widespread concerns that the media and policy makers had been far too eager to move past what are clearly deep and lasting impacts for the Japanese people and for the world"--Amazon.com
Doctors in blue : the medical history of the Union Army in the Civil War by George Worthington Adams( Book )

2 editions published in 1952 in English and held by 749 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Similar in scope to H. H. Cunningham's Doctors in Gray, George Worthington Adams' Doctors in Blue, originally published more than forty years ago and now available for the first time in paperback, remains the definitive work on the medical history of the Union army. Adams calculates that 300,000 Union soldiers lost their lives during the war. Confederate attacks account for only a third of these deaths, disease for the rest. In addition, there were a startling 400,000 wounded or injured and almost 6,000,000 cases of illness." "Undoubtedly, behind the sickness and mortality statistics of the Civil War lie ignorance and inefficiency. But Doctors in Blue reveals the earnestness, cooperative spirit, and great scientific strides of the period as well." --Book Jacket

The reluctant surgeon : a biography of John Hunter by John Kobler( Book )

1 edition published in 1960 in English and held by 528 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since his death at the end of the eighteenth century John Hunter has been variously described by his fellow scientists as "the Shakespeare of medicine," "with the exception of Hippocrates, the grandest figure in his profession," "a philosopher whose mental grasp embraced the whole range of nature's works," "one of the greatest men the English nation has produced." Hunterian literature crowds the shelves of medical libraries the world over. Yet outside the scientific community the name today strikes only a dim spark of recognition, if any at all. The reason is not hard to find. Although his practical contributions were legion, none had the kind of dramatic impact, the easily grasped significance, that excites the lay imagination. What Hunter accomplished, however, transcended specific discovery and technical invention, and in its totality, was no less spectacular. He introduced a new spirit of inquiry, a philosophy, which not only transformed the medical theory and practice of his epoch, but profoundly influenced scientific thinking everywhere down to our own times. Hunter has not fared well at the hands of his biographers. This book is an effort to reclaim the scientist from the archives and the man from the shadows. -- from Preface

Government in public health by Harry S Mustard( Book )

1 edition published in 1945 in English and held by 297 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this monograph, Dr. Mustard brings out the rapid extension of the field of public health as one of the important trends in modern medicine. Recognizing that public health activity originated as a local responsibility, Dr. Mustard describes the growing interest on the part of the state and federal governments and, in so doing, faces squarely the present trend toward increased federal control through the Public Health Service. He also makes clear that this trend may be ascribed in large part to the lack of efficiency at the local level where, in many communities, either the leadership or the public support was inferior to that available to the Public Health Service. The fact that basic public health services are as yet by no means available to all communities in the country is to Dr. Mustard the immediate challenge to the Public Health Service, and he raises the question whether, until that challenge is met, the time is ripe to consider nation-wide activities in new and highly specialized lines. Turning to organization and activities of state health departments, Dr. Mustard traces their natural development and describes their proper sphere of action. He also very clearly indicates the recently increased responsibility of state administrators as intermediaries between the federal and local authorities in the distribution of funds appropriated as grants-in-aid from the federal to the local governments, and points out the trend toward an increase of such grants in the future. - Preface
