Ways of knowing : a new history of science, technology, and medicine by John V Pickstone ( Book )
18 editions published between 2000 and 2004 in English and held by 608 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This text provides an accessible framework for understanding science, technology, and medicine (STM) in the West from the Renaissance to the 21st century. John V. Pickstone's approach has four key features. First, he synthesizes the long-term histories and philosophies of disciplines that are normally studied separately. Second, he dissects STM into specific ways of knowing - natural history, analysis, and experimentalism - with separate but interlinked elements. Third, he explores these ways of knowing as forms of work related to our various technologies for making, mending, and destroying. And finally, he relates scientific and technical knowledges to popular understandings and to politics

Medical innovations in historical perspective ( Book )
11 editions published between 1991 and 1992 in English and Undetermined and held by 235 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Discoveries and new techniques are the stuff of much medical history, but we know remarkably little about the sources of innovation and how new forms of medicine were created and understood in their own times. In this volume, a team of medical historians apply the techniques of the new social history to medical innovations in the century 1860-1960. Topics range from antiseptic surgery to psychiatry, from new drugs to the reorganization of hospital services. They include "failures" as well as "successes," European and American examples as well as British. The essays constitute a sustained exploration of social context in medical innovation. In sequence, they also provide a perspective on social and political change in medicine. The volume will appeal to practitioners, teachers and students in history, sociology, economics, medicine and policy studies - indeed to all who wish to understand the subtle interactions of science, medical practice and social organization

5 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 219 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Medicine, madness, and social history : essays in honour of Roy Porter ( Book )
10 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 181 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Roy Porter was a brilliant historian of medicine and madness. He was the British authority on the Enlightenment of the eighteenth century, but he wore his learning lightly. He died, far too young, in 2002. This collection of essays was written by twenty of his colleagues and students, not just to honour his memory but to convey and extend the spirit of his work. All the essays are based on orginal work in the fields that Porter made his own. They range from the eighteenth century to the present, and tackle major themes, from disability rights to the popularization of science. However, the focus, for the most part, is on people - artisan gardeners jostle with anarchists, dentists and hypnotists in a lively, and very Porterian, parade. Medicine may sometimes seem techinical and remote, but this collection brings it to life through its social history

Surgeons, manufacturers, and patients : a transatlantic history of total hip replacement by Julie Anderson ( Book )

The Total Hip Replacement, or Artificial Hip, was invented by British surgeons after World War Two. It became the basis of a multi-billion global industry in joint replacement. This pioneering study ranges from inventive surgeons to multi-national manufacturers, including technologies, collaborations, regulations, quality assessments, and the changing expectations of patients. It explores total hip replacement in the very different health economies of the U.K. and the U.S., asking searching questions about costs as well as benefits

Companion encyclopedia of medicine in the twentieth century by Roger Cooter ( Book )
1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
During the twentieth century, medicine has been radically transformed and powerfully transformative. In 1900, western medicine was important to philanthropy and public health, but it was marginal to the state, the industrial economy and the welfare of most individuals. It is now central to these aspects of life. Our prospects seem increasingly dependent on the progress of bio-medical sciences and genetic technologies which promise to reshape future generations. The editors of Medicine in the Twentieth Century have commissioned over forty authoritative essays, written by historical

The Cambridge history of science ( Book )
in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Publisher's description: This volume offers to general and specialist readers alike the fullest and most complete survey of the development of science in the eighteenth century, exploring the implications of the 'scientific revolution' of the previous century and the major new growth-points, particularly in the experimental sciences. It is designed to be read as both a narrative and an interpretation, and also used as a work of reference. While prime attention is paid to western science, space is also given to science in traditional cultures and colonial science. The coverage strikes a balance between analysis of the cognitive dimension of science itself and interpretation of its wider social, economic and cultural significance. The contributors, world leaders in their respective specialities, engage with current historiographical and methodological controversies and strike out on positions of their own
