Race and Medicine in Nineteenth- and Early-Twentieth-Century America is a collection of papers that chronicle African American health issues from the mid 1860s to the early 1900s. The collection was authored by Todd L. Savitt, PhD, professor of medical humanities and history at Brody School of Medicine of East Carolina University. Dr Savitt has written extensively on this subject, including 3 other books and numerous articles. His first book, Medicine and Slavery: TheDiseases and Health Care of Blacks in Antebellum Virginia, documents African American health issues during that time. This current volume further continues his research by looking at the health care of African American patients as well as at African American physicians and the medical schools at which they trained. In his preface, the author states that the progression of themes in this book developed as his research uncovered relevant topics related to African American health issues.
