The social history of medicine over the last fifteen years has redrawn the boundaries of medical history. Specialised papers and monographs have contributed to our knowledge of how medicine has affected society and how society has shaped medicine. This book synthesises, through a series of essays, some of the most significant findings of this 'new social history' of medicine. The period covered ranges from ancient Greece to the present time. While coverage is not exhaustive, the reader is able to trace how medicine in the West developed from an unlicensed open market place, with many different types of practitioners in the classical period, to the nineteenth- and twentieth-century professionalised medicine of State influence, of hospitals, public health medicine, and scientific medicine. The book also covers innovatory topics such as patient-doctor relationships, the history of the asylum, and the demographic background to the history of medicine.

Doctors must use their five senses in their daily practice, especially in diagnosing disease. Many of the essays in this illustrated collection focus on the diagnostic setting, from the Greek physicians to CAT scanners, and on the ways in which medical education has attempted to train doctors to use their senses. Other essays explore the wider presentation of medicine, anatomy, and disease, through the visual arts and the media. They demonstrate the extent to which medicine is a visual activity, but do not neglect the other senses, as well as historical preoccupations with the role of reason in the doctor's life.

Bekenntnisse eines Hirnchirurgen Wie arbeitet ein Hirnchirurg? Wie fühlt es sich an, in das Organ zu schneiden, mit dem Menschen denken und träumen? Wie geht man damit um, wenn das Leben eines Patienten von der eigenen Heilkunst abhängt? Und wie, wenn man scheitert? Mehr noch als in anderen Bereichen der Medizin ist es in der Hirnchirurgie so gut wie unmöglich, nie einem Patienten zu schaden, denn Operationen am Innersten des Menschen sind immer mit unkalkulierbaren Risiken verbunden. Henry Marsh, einer der besten Neurochirurgen Großbritanniens, erzählt beeindruckend offen, selbstkritisch und humorvoll von den Ausnahmesituationen, die seinen Arbeitsalltag ausmachen. Seine Geschichten handeln vom Heilen und Helfen, vom Hoffen und Scheitern, von fatalen Fehlern und von der Schwierigkeit, die richtige Entscheidung zu treffen.
