This book examines the social, economic and political issues of public health provision in historical perspective. It outlines the development of public health in Britain, Continental Europe and the United States from the ancient world through to the modern state. It includes discussion of: * pestilence, public order and morality in pre-modern times * the Enlightenment and its effects * centralization in Victorian Britain * localization of health care in the United States * population issues and family welfare * the rise of the classic welfare state * attitudes towards public health into the twenty-first century.
"Dorothy Porter's latest contribution to public health history is an ambitious undertaking that builds upon her earlier and well-known work. Her aim in Health, Civilization and the State is to provide a synthesis of public health history in Europe and North America.." -Peter Twohig, Dalhousie University
