This volume of 13 essays focuses on the health and treatment of the peoples of northern Europe and North America over the course of the 19th and 20th centuries. Numerous themes and topics are raised that are relevant not only to a discussion of how medicine was practised in remote areas in the recent past, but also to current attempts to improve medical care in more isolated regions of the world. Studies for the Society for the Social History of Medicine. No jacket.
