Cancer Patients, Cancer Pathways : Historical and Sociological Perspectives Hardback
Edited by Carsten Timmermann, Elizabeth Toon
Part of the Science, Technology and Medicine in Modern History series
Eleven essays by historians and sociologists examine cancer research and treatment as everyday practice in post-war Europe and North America.
These are not stories of inevitable medical progress and obstacles overcome, but of historical contingencies, cultural differences, hope, and often disappointed expectations.
