The Law and Medicine: Friend or Nemesis? by Robert Jaggs-Fowler

The Law and Medicine: Friend or Nemesis? by Robert Jaggs-Fowler

The crucial relationship between medicine and law from the early apothecaries to the modern-day general practitioner

The work draws together a rich tapestry of sources across many different disciplines, covering the relationship of medicine and law from ancient history to the present time. As such, it provides a valuable overview of the subject in a manner that has not been published before. It provides useful background reading to anyone interested in medico-legal medicine, as well as providing a springboard for students and writers interested in researching the field through its broad bibliography, or taking their reading to greater depths. There is no other book that considers the historic relationship between the two professions in this manner, or that draws together in one volume such a diversity of reference resources. It will be of interest to medical and law students, at both undergraduate and postgraduate level.
