Book review

Lindsay Wilson takes a new approach to the social history of medicine by focusing on the key role that women played as both providers and recipients of health care during the Ancien regime. Wilson focuses on three medical controversies - the "miraculous cures" claimed by the convulsionaries of St Medard, the uncertainty over the maximum length of pregnancy, and the debate over the medical effectiveness of Mesmerism.
