Rochester Studies in Medical History

Series Editor: Christopher Crenner

The editors of the Rochester Studies in Medical History series seek to bring to our readers publications that will advance an understanding of health, illness, and healing in a broad historical context. The series seeks to support projects especially that promise to elucidate the history of public health and health policy, the history of clinical and investigative medicine, and the history of the biomedical sciences and their application to practice, as well as works that deepen our historical appreciation of the cultural and social significance of medicine and disease.
