17 editions published between 2000 and 2004 in English and held by 612 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Medicine in the twentieth century ( Book )
5 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 320 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Medical innovations in historical perspective ( Book )
11 editions published between 1991 and 1992 in English and Undetermined and held by 238 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

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

The Total Hip Replacement (THR), or Artificial Hip, brought pain-free mobility to millions of older people, and then to younger, relatively athletic patients.
