Medicine and Industrial Society - A history of hospital development in Manchester and its Region, 1752-1946

£24.99

Product description

In one of the first histories of its kind, John Pickstone offers a comprehensive and revealing account of the two centuries of medical care preceding the establishment of the National Health Service. The importance of Manchester as the classic industrial city, and the variety of urban cultures in its towns make this region an ideal base for a study of the economic, social and political factors affecting hospital development. John Pickstone has been able to draw on a wealth of original sources and provides a fascinating reconstruction both of a region's hospitals and of the national negotiations which produced the NHS. This book will interest not only historians and those directly involved in healthcare; it will offer new insights to all those who wish to improve their understanding of our society's institutions.

Hardback with dust jacket. Very good condition. Pages crisp to spine and unmarked.
