Sinopse

This is a revisionist account of Edwin ChadwickOs construction in the 1830s and 1840s of a Opublic healthO concentrated on sanitary public works. Rejecting the view of ChadwickOs programme as a necessary response to an obvious urban problem, it sees it as a counter-revolutionary stratagem, a successful effort to block the emergence of a public medicine concerned with the broader social questions of the industrial revolution: matters of the health effects of poverty, overwork, and economic policy generally, matters of concern to Chartists, and factory, anti-poor law, and anti-corn law agitators, of the health effects of work and wages. It is the first work to review the public health movements in light of the agendas of E. P. Thomson, Michel Foucault, the new cultural historians, the new urban historians, as well as constructivist historians of science, technology, and medicine.
