Science & medicine ( )
4 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 231 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Science and medicine have been critical to southern history and the formation of southern culture. For three centuries, scientists in the South have documented the lush natural world around them and set a lasting tradition of inquiry. The medical history of the region, however, has been at times tragic. Disease, death, and generations of poor health have been the legacy of slavery, the plantation economy, rural life, and poorly planned cities. The essays in this volume explore this legacy as well as recent developments in technology, research, and medicine in the South. Subjects include natural history, slave health, medicine in the Civil War, public health, eugenics, HIV/AIDS, environmental health, and the rise of research institutions and hospitals, to name but a few. With 38 thematic essays, 44 topical entries, and a comprehensive overview essay, this volume offers an authoritative reference to science and medicine in the American South."--Publisher's website

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Articles in this volume explore the "where" of southern culture, past and present, as cities have grown larger and more important in the region's cultural landscape and heritage once passed along through the telling of tales is increasingly learned through books. This volume traces the evolution of southern culture and gives a spatial perspective to where the region's traditions and changes are taking place. Putting together the disparate pieces that make up this place called "the South," this volume provides a contextual setting for the discussions in all the other volumes
