Governing Systems: Modernity and the Making of Public Health in England, 1830-1910

£19.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

Softcover published by the University of California Press, number 11 in the Berkeley Series in British Studies. First edition, 2016.

When and how did public health become modern? In Governing Systems, Tom Crook offers a fresh answer to this question through an examination of Victorian and Edwardian England, long considered one of the critical birthplaces of modern public health. This birth, Crook argues, should be located not in the rise of professional expertise or a centralized bureacratic state, but in the contested formation and functioning of multiple systems, both human and material, administrative and technological.

Theoretically ambitious but empirically grounded, Governing Systems will be of interest to historians of modern public health and modern Britain, as well as to anyone interested in the complex gestation of the governmental dimensions of modernity.

There is a signature under the title on the half-title page and a little shelf wear, but the book remains in very good condition.
