Divide and conquer a comparative history of medical specialization by George Weisz( )
19 editions published between 2004 and 2006 in English and held by 1,276 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This wide-ranging book is the first to examine one of the most significant and characteristic features of modern medicine - specialization - in historical and comparative context. Based on research in three languages, it traces the origins of modern medical specialization to 1830s Paris and examines its spread to Germany, Britain, and the US, showing how it evolved from an outgrowth of academic teaching and research in the 19th century into the dominant mode of medical practice by the middle of the 20th. Taking account of the parallels and differences in national developments, the book shows the international links among the nations' medical systems as well as the independent influences of local political and social conditions in the move toward specialization. An epilogue takes the story up to the twenty-first century, where problems of specialization merge into the larger crisis of health care which affects most western nations today
Body counts medical quantification in historical and sociological perspective ( )
9 editions published between 2005 and 2008 in English and French and held by 1,192 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In an invigorating comparative and interdisciplinary reconsideration of the role of different types of medical counting, this wide-ranging bilingual volume takes us from the mortality tables of the eighteenth century to the movement for evidence-based medicine in our own day. Culled from the proceedings of La quantification dans les sciences médicales et de la santé: perspective historique held at the Musée Claude-Bernard in France in 2002, Body Counts moves beyond the usual emphasis on public health and clinical medicine to include the central role of numbers in laboratory work and medical instrumentation. Body Counts provides an innovative, historical, and sociological account of the functions of quantification
