Full Description

Suman Seth offers dramatically new ways to understand the mutual construction of medicine, race, and empire in the eighteenth century. Readers will find medical writers engaging with abolitionism and the care of the enslaved, and will be able to track the ways that medicine created modern notions of racial difference.
