Summary

The essays in this collection originate from the highly successful research symposium organized by the Society for the Social History of Medicine at the University of Southampton in 1998. They are concerned with the interaction between different medical approaches during the last two centuries. A variety of methodological approaches are used to challenge narrowly conceived boundaries between disciplines and methodologies, thereby providing new insights and perspectives.
