To cover the history of medicine in America from the earliest European settlements to the present day in 159 pages seems a risky enough undertaking, yet James Cassedy here carries it off admirably.

It is clearly written; its generalizations are firmly stated; and its scope is broad. Anne Hardy Medical History)

James Cassedy’s Medicine in America, A Short History takes a comprehensive look at medical progress in America from its colonial days to the present time. The book takes on five different themes in discussing medicine. First, it discusses the medical establishment, and how it develops over time. Second, it looks at the alternative to established medicine. Alternatives consist of any kind of medical practice outside the orthodox practice of the time. Third, Cassedy explores the science of medicine, taking time to recognize individuals who make significant discoveries in the field of medicine.

Medicine in America James Cassedy explores America's medical "distinctiveness" and follows medical and health-related matters from colonial times to the present. Through four chronological chapters, Cassedy focuses on broad aspects of the American medical scene: the work and ideas of the "orthodox" physician and the formation of America's medical establishment; non establishment health activities, including self-medication, therapeutic sects, and organized movements to promote nutrition and fitness; the health-related sciences, along with their institutions and accomplishments; governmental involvement in medical care, licensing, research, sanitation, and public health; and the varying "health environments" of rural, small town,urban, and transient populations.

As he examines events in the context of political, social, economic, industrial, and other historical realities, Cassedy shows the rise of orthodox medicine in the United States through its increasing professionalization and the establishment of medical institutions. He follows the expanding role of government in the advancement and regulation of health care, and the explosion of public health problems that accompanied urbanization. He also explores how regional, racial, social, and economic differences determined access to healthcare. Medicine in America is a valuable introduction that links the history of medicine, health, and disease in the United States to the larger events in U.S. social history.

The book came in brand new condition! So happy

This book is a great primer on the history of American medicine. It’s a survey of the development of medicine in the US, especially the development of the medical professions, and social forces that have shaped interactions between medical professionals and medical consumers. It came out almost 30 years ago, but it’s held up really well and still accomplishes it’s goal of introducing readers who are unfamiliar with the history of medicine to the medical history of the US. Great book, and will assign to my college students as a basic textbook for History of American Medicine.
