Description

The essays in this collection focus on the dynamic relationship between health and place. Historical and anthropological perspectives are presented – each discipline having a long tradition of engaging with these concepts. The resulting dialogue should produce a new layer of methodology, enhancing both fields.

Studies for the Society for the Social History of Medicine is concerned with all aspects of health, illness and medicine, from antiquity to the present. The series is a collaboration between Routledge and the Society for the Social History of Medicine (SSHM). The SSHM has pioneered the social history of medicine and interdisciplinary approaches to the histories of medicine, welfare, public health, demography, anthropology, sociology, social administration and health economics, and the book series reflects these interests.
