Description:
Revolutionary Medicine is a "must-read" for anyone interested in the birth of America.  Upon closing Jeanne E. Abram's wonderful book about the illnesses and health experiences of the nation's founders, you will never be able to look in the same way again at Washington, Adams, Jefferson, and their peers.  --Howard Markel, author of An Anatomy of Addiction
As America enters a new era of health care, this timely volume recalls what medicine was like in the days of the Founding Fathers.  Everything from Washington's dental woes to Jefferson's troublesome headaches finds its way into theis lively and well-researched book. In recounting battles over vaccinations, herbal remedies, the efficacy of blood-letting, and the appropriate role for government intervention in medical issues, Revolutionary Medicine reminds us that debates over health care are nothing new in America.  They go back to our founders.  --Jonathan D. Sarna, professor of American Jewish History, Brandeis University
