Gender and Medicine in Ireland

Edited by Margaret Preston and Margaret Ó hÓgartaigh

Paper $39.95s    |   978-0-8156-3271-9    |    2012

"As this edited collection demonstrates, gender matters. And understanding how gender influenced medical services and practices not only helps us understand the past, but also the present.—"Canadian Journal of Irish Studies

"The themes of gender and medicine are complex and important, necessitating broad-based considerations that often cut across the histories of gender, medicine, and broader Irish society. This collection succeeds admirably in reflecting the intrinsically cross-disciplinary nature of the subject at hand.—"Brendan Kelly, Irish Journal of Psychological Medicine

"This fine collection of essays will greatly enhance the corpus of knowledge of the history of Irish medicine, focusing particularly on how medical events were experienced by women, and issues that were unique to the female sex. In so doing, it addresses a number of subjects that hitherto have not received the attention they should.—"Susan Mullaney, Irish Economic and Social History

"Brought together in one volume, the essays make a compelling case for reevaluating the way we view categories of sickness and health, as well as how we view the interconnections of private and public healthcare in Ireland."—Timothy G. McMahon, author of Grand Opportunity: The Gaelic Revival and Irish Society, 1893–1910

"Nobody concerned with the reality, as distinct from the rhetoric, of life in Ireland over these centuries, above all for poorer women, can afford to ignore the issues raised in this wide-ranging, stimulating, and challenging collection."—J. J. Lee, New York University
