Health, Hygiene and Eugenics in Southeastern Europe Hardback
Edited by Christian Promitzer, Sevasti Trubeta, Marius Turda
Part of the CEU Press Studies in the History of Medicine series
This volume is a collection of chapters that deal with issues of health, hygiene and eugenics in Southeastern Europe to 1945, specifically, in Bosnia-Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Greece and Romania.
Its major concern is to examine the transfer of medical ideas to society via local, national and international agencies and to show in how far developments in public health, preventive medicine, social hygiene, welfare, gender relations and eugenics followed a regional pattern.
This volume provides insights into a region that has to date been marginal to scholarship of the social history of medicine.
