Product Overview

In the last two centuries, medicine has been transformed by a number of major technological and organisational innovations. This edited collection examines the role of medical technologies in the history of medicine, of new diagnostic and therapeutic tools, prostheses and apparatus. The volume also discusses the social, cultural, political and economic contexts from which these medical technologies emerged, and, in turn, how technical innovations gave rise to new social constellations. A central purpose of the volume is to show what consequences new practices linked to the uptake of certain technologies had for the history of medicine more widely.
