In our rapidly advancing scientific and technological world, many take great pride and comfort in believing that we are on the threshold of new ways of thinking, living, and understanding ourselves.

Even in swiftly developing fields such as health and medicine, most systems and policies embody a sequence of earlier ideas and preexisting patterns.

No other gods : on science and American social thought by Charles E Rosenberg( Book )

29 editions published between 1976 and 1997 in 3 languages and held by 1,176 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In its original edition, [this book] offered a pioneering and influential examination of the ways in which social institutions and values shaped American scientific practice and thought. In this revised and expanded edition, Rosenberg directs our attention to the dilemma posed by the social study of science: How can we reconcile the scientist's understanding of science as a quest for truth and knowledge with the historian's conviction that all knowledge bears the marks of the culture which gave it birth?"--Back cover
The trial of the assassin Guiteau : psychiatry and law in the gilded age by Charles E Rosenberg( Book )

28 editions published between 1968 and 1996 in English and held by 1,076 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this brilliant study, Charles Rosenberg uses the celebrated trial of Charles Guiteau, who assassinated President Garfield in 1881, to explore insanity and criminal responsibility in the Gilded Age. Rosenberg masterfully reconstructs the courtroom battle waged by twenty-four expert witnesses who represented the two major schools of psychiatric thought of the generation immediately preceding Freud. Although the role of genetics in behavior was widely accepted, these psychiatrists fiercely debated whether heredity had predisposed Guiteau to assassinate Garfield. Rosenberg's account allows us to consider one of the opening rounds in the controversy over the criminal responsibility of the insane, a debate that still rages today."--Book description, Amazon.com

Our present complaint : American medicine, then and now by Charles E Rosenberg( )

17 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 945 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Historian of medicine Rosenberg presents an analysis of the current tensions in American medicine. Situating these tensions within their historical and social contexts, Rosenberg investigates the fundamental characteristics of medicine: how we think about disease, how the medical profession thinks about itself and its moral and intellectual responsibilities, and what prospective patients--all of us--expect from medicine and the medical profession. He explores the nature and definition of disease and how ideas of disease causation reflect social values and cultural negotiations. His analyses of alternative medicine and bioethics consider the historically specific ways in which we define and seek to control what is appropriately medical. At a time when clinical care and biomedical research generate as much angst as they offer cures, this volume provides valuable insight into how the practice of medicine has evolved, where it is going, and how lessons from history can improve its prognosis.--From publisher description

Allergy : the history of a modern malady by Mark Jackson( Book )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 763 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Allergy is a modern malady. A century ago, even the term allergy was unknown, and ailments such as asthma and eczema were considered to be rare and non-fatal conditions that afflicted only the upper classes of Western society. Yet, as Mark Jackson reveals in this ground-breaking book, by the 1990s allergy had exploded into a set of diseases of great medical, cultural and political significance." "In Allergy, Jackson traces how allergy became the archetypal 'disease of civilization', generating global political concerns about the relationship between health and the environment and stimulating anxieties about the detrimental effects of modern living."--Jacket

"Between August 1918 and March 1919 the Spanish influenza spread worldwide, claiming over 25 million lives, more people than perished in the fighting of the First World War. It proved fatal to at least a half-million Americans. Yet, the Spanish flu pandemic is largely forgotten today ... [The author] recounts the course of the pandemic during the panic-striken months of 1918 and 1919, measures its impact on American society, and probes the curious loss of national memory of this cataclysmic event."

The butterfly caste : a social history of pellagra in the South by Elizabeth W Etheridge( Book )

1 edition published in 1972 in English and held by 597 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is a medical detective story of the search for a killer. Pellagra, the disease of the four Ds: diarrhea, dermatitis, dementia, and death, was epidemic in the Southern United States in the early part of this century. The often fatal disease was characterized by the dramatic stigmata of an ugly red "butterfly" across the nose and a symmetrical skin rash on the extremities. Although it has been described and studied by European physicians as early as 1735, and pellagroid symptoms had long been identified in this country, pellagra was not acknowledged as a discrete disease until 1907. In that year an epidemic broke out in an asylum in Alabama. Reports of other cases quickly followed, and within a few years pellagra was pandemic in the South. The search for the killer was on, but it would be many years before the cause could be isolated and a cure found. In 1914, Dr. Joseph Goldberger, a United States Public Health Service physician, became director of the PHS pellagra research program. This book traces his efforts to identify the culprit responsible for this disease and ultimately to find the cure in 1937 that would help to eliminate it
