LYONS, Maryinez. The Colonial disease : A social history of sleeping sickness in northern Zaire, 1900-1940. Cambrdge [et al] : Cambridge University Press, (1992). First Edition. Pp (4),[v]-xiv,(2),[1]-335,(1). Illustrated. Maps. Index. 8vo, black cloth, gilt lettering to spine. In the Cambridge History of Medicine series. "The Belgians commonly referred to their colonisation of the Congo as a 'civilising mission', and many regarded the introduction of Western biomedicine as a central feature of their 'gift' to Africans.By 1930, however, it was clear that some features of their 'civilising mis sion' were in fact closely connected to the poor health of many of the Congolese. The Europeans had indeed brought scientific enquiry and Western biomedicine; but they had also introduced a harsh, repressive political system which, coupled with a ruthlessly exploitative economic system, led to the introduction of new diseases while already-existing diseases were exacerbated and spread. Tropical, or 'colonial', medicine was a new field at the turnof the century, linked closely both to European expansionism and human try panosomiasis, or sleeping sickness. In 1901 a devastating epidemic had erupted in Uganda, killing well over 250,000 people. Over the next decades other African colonies, including the Belgian Congo, experienced epidemic sleeping sickness. By the 1960s and independence, many Africans had come to regard sleeping sickness as the 'colonial disease' because of the truly draconian measures taken by some colonial administrations in their attempts to check the spread of the disease. Sleeping sickness captured the colonial imagination to such an extent that it continued to dominate medical attention for many years. As a consequence, other glaring public health needs of the Congolese were ignored over decades." (Abstract). Contents : 1. Disease and medicine in the history of Africapage. 2.

The role of scientific and professional factors, as well as the priorities of women's employment, eugenics and pronatalism are also considered. Together, the various chapters present a cohesive and integrated view of a hitherto neglected area of study.

McGill-Queens Studies in the History of Medicine, Health and Society, number 23.

"Medical laboratory workers play a crucial role in the health care system, but are often hidden from public view. Unlike many previous histories of Canadian health care, "Labour in the Laboratory" offers an intimate portrait of the women (and a few men) who laboured at the bench. In a detailed analysis of local hospital records, membership records, newspapers, professional health care journals, and other sources, Peter Twohig shows that the history of health care looks different when seen from the perspective of workers other than physicians or nurses.

"Labour in the Laboratory" is also about the ways in which health care work has been organized. Twohig reveals that many health care workers fulfilled multiple challenging traditional ideas of professional boundaries and exclusive control over particular tasks. Using evidence from the Maritime provinces, he challenges assumptions about health care work and hospital development throughout Canada and beyond." - from the dj.

"A Long Way from Home is the first comprehensive account of the tub erculosis epidemic among the Inuit in the mid-part of this century. The Inuit were victims not only of the epidemic but also of the Canadian government's shockingly slow response and lack of consideration for their culture. Focusing on patients' experiences and the programs set up to deal with the epidemic, rather than a purely medical discussion of the disease and treatment, a voice is given to those involved and a human face to the bare statistics. Based on recollections of patients, interviews with participants in government programs, available literature and statistics, and records of the Northern Affairs Program, Pat Grygier examines the programs for the Inuit in all parts of Canada. Background information on tuberculosis in Canada, conditions of life in the North at the time for both Inuit and non-Natives, and the development and modification of government administration of the North are also covered.

Before then, 'scientific medicine' enjoyed uncontested cultural prestige, with kindly but strict doctors wielding unquestioned authority over grateful patients while 'quacks' flogged dubious remedies to thepoor and credulous -- or so go popular perceptions and, for the most part, received scholarly wisdom. But the very nature of cancer -- mysterious, ca pricious, and deadly -- challenged medical authority in the past as much asit does today, and in 'Negotiating Disease' Barbara Clow lays to rest old assumptions about the monopoly of health care by doctors in the first half of the twentieth century." - from the introductory preamble.

This is the story of the disease and its effects on farmers, as well as of the scientists who studied it. Thedisease was unknown to western science or to veterinary practice until it was introduced into Rhodesia in 1901. It devastated the cattle-raising and ox-cart dependent transport systems of Rhodesia and South Africa and was not fully brought under control for some 50 years. The book describes the social and economic impact of the outbreak, the scientific investigations intoit, and the effort to control it. The scientific study of the disease was done in part by the famous bacteriologist Robert Koch, whose many early errors had a negative effect on later investigators whose work was far more sound."

WINSOR, Mary P. Starfish, Jellyfish, and the Order of Life : Issues in Nineteenth-Century Science. New Haven and London : Yale University Press, 1976. First Edition. Pp (10),[1]-228,(2). Illustrated. Index. 8vo, tan cloth, black lettering to spine.

Yale Studies in the History of Science and Medicine No.10.

Mary Pickard Winsor (b. 1943, Massachusetts) historian of Biology, was teaching at the University of Toronto at the time of publication.

"In this probing contribution to the history of ideas, Mary P. Winsor seeks to understand some of the intricate developments of nineteenth-century invertebrate taxonomy. In contrast to Charles Darwin and his followers, who believed that scientific classification was based on evolution, she presents a group of zoologists who based their theories on an orderly, unchanging world. Arguing that there was a widespread expectation that a truly natural classification would exhibit pattern and design, the author discusses the theories such influential scientists as Louis Agassiz, Rudolf Leuckart, and T. H. Huxley.

Protessor Winsor sees the history of biology as a dialogue between scientist and organism. In her volume, which is amply illustrated and includes a comprehensive glossary, we meet a variety of unfamiliar marine animals: jellyfish, sea urchins, coral animals, and starfish. The lively text shows how the study of taxonomy of the radiates was closely linked to the broadest issues of science of the day and was often at the very frontier of critical research." (from the dj).

Contents :
1. Cuvier's Creation of the Embranchement Radiata.
2. Ehrenberg's Opposition to the Simplicity of the Radiata.
3. The Discovery of Alternation of Generations in Acakphs and Polvos.
4. Thomas Henry Huxley's Ideas about the Relationships between Polyps and AcaJephs.
5. The Discovery and Interpretation of Echinoderm Larvae.
6. Louis Agassiz's Theories on the Meaning of Groups in Classification.
7. The Letters of Alexander Agassiz and Fritz Müller on the Radiata and Evolution.
8. Darwin and the Shape of Classification.

Appendix : Letters of Alexander Agassiz to Fritz Müller, from the Archives of the Museum of Comparative Zoology, Harvard University.
With glossary, blbiliography and index.

Short penned note to one page, else very good in edgeworn dustjacket. Signed with inscription by the author : "To one of the few mortals who apreciates the "importance of unimportant animals" [signed] M.P. Winsor." 55.00
