Product description


"Alun Withey's first book is a wide-ranging and spirited, yet also rounded and original contribution to the social history of British...Withey has achieved more than enough already in this valuable and often fascinating book.'" -- Robert Allan Houston, Social History of Medicine, vol 25, no 3,

This very welcome book is brimming full of suggestions setting medical history in a rich new context. It will also give historians of Wales itself and their students plenty to think about, and to argue with. The bibliography is excellent.' -- Michael Roberts, Bulletin of the History of Medicine, 2012, 86

"Readers will be impressed by the breadth of Withey's research. His command over a wide range of primary services is admirable" -- Alun Roberts, Morganwg: The Journal of Glamorgan History, Volume LVI 2012

"Short-listed for 2013 the Longman / History Today Book of the Year award"
