What was the medical marketplace? What is a 'medical marketplace'? This book provides the first critical examination of medicine and the market in pre-modern England, colonial North America andBritish India. Chapters cover the most important themes in the social history of medicine from the fifteenth to the mid-nineteenth centuries, addressing healthcare in town and country, among rich andpoor, women and men, and examining both patients and practitioners. Drawing on recent developments inthe history of exchange, they offer new understandings of the ways inwhich diverse aspects of healthcare operated and changed in this period of social and economic transformation. Each chapter offerssignificant new interpretation of its field based upon a critical examination of the applicability ofthe medical marketplace model and presents substantial new research in an accessible style
