9780813545769: Picturing Medical Progress from Pasteur to Polio: A History of Mass Media Images and Popular Attitudes in America

Today, pharmaceutical companies, HMOs, insurance carriers, and the health care system in general may often puzzle and frustrate the general publicùand even physicians and researchers. By contrast, from the 1880s through the 1950s Americans enthusiastically embraced medicine and its practitioners. Picturing Medical Progress from Pasteur to Polio offers a refreshing portrait of an era when the public excitedly anticipated medical progress and research breakthroughs.

This unique study with 130 archival illustrations drawn from newspaper sketches, caricatures, comic books, Hollywood films, and LIFE magazine photography analyzes the relationship between mass media images and popular attitudes. Bert Hansen considers the impact these representations had on public attitudes and shows how media portrayal and popular support for medical research grew together and reinforced each other.

About the Author :

Bert Hansen a professor of history at Baruch College, has published a book on medieval science and many articles on the history of modern medicine and public health.

Review :

"Even as a long-time collector of medical prints, I learned a lot from this extraordinary book. Hansen's digging has turned up many discoveries, providing a new perspective on graphic art in popular culture. The images are wonderful, but this is not just a picture book; it's a great read as well, filled with remarkable insights." --William Helfand, author of several books on medical imagery and a trustee of the Philadelphia Museum of Art

"This book is analytical, nostalgic, sensitive, and just plain fun. Bert Hansen's meticulous privileging of the visual is a pathbreaking achievement for methods in the social and cultural history of medicine. You can be rewarded simply by looking at the wonderful pictures, but you will 'see' so much more in his lively prose."
Jacalyn Duffin, Hannah Professor, Queen's University, and former president of the American Association for the History of Medicine

"Even as a long-time collector of medical prints, I learned a lot from this extraordinary book. Hansen's digging has turned up many discoveries, providing a new perspective on graphic art in popular culture. The images are wonderful, but this is not just a picture book; it's a great read as well, filled with remarkable insights."
William Helfand, author of five books on medical imagery and a trustee of the Philadelphia Museum of Art

"Picturing Medical Progress from Pasteur to Polio is an authoritative, well-written account that will be a significant contribution not only to the history of American medicine, but to the history of American popular culture."
Elizabeth Toon, Centre for the History of Science, Technology and Medicine, University of Manchester
