Studies in the Social History of Medicine
 

Introduction

Studies in the Social History of Medicine is a well-established series that was launched by the Society for the Social History of Medicine in 1987. Published by Routledge, its mission is to provide an outlet for high-quality research that embodies the Society’s commitment to the inter-disciplinary study of health, disease, and medical care in the past.

Until recently, the series concentrated on collections of essays. Organized around selected themes, these volumes often but not always arose from SSHM conferences and were subsequently developed by their editors. The series will continue to include works of this nature.

In 2001, however, the Society decided in conjunction with the publisher to accept single-authored monographs and a second editor was appointed with responsibility for this initiative. Both the current editors welcome proposals for prospective additions to the series.
