Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: After the American Revolution, the new republic's most prominent physicians envisioned a society in which doctors, lawyers, and the state would work together to ensure public well-being and a high standard of justice. By the 1830s, medical jurisprudence was being taught as an important subject in the nation's best medical schools, new medical ideas about insanity inspired major legal reforms, and legal issues stimulated medical advances. Medical malpractice suits were so rare as to be curiosities. But as James C. Mohr reveals in Doctors and the Law, by mid-century what had once appeared to be fertile ground for cooperative civic service had become a battlefield, and the relationship between doctors and the legal system became increasingly adversarial. Mohr provides a graceful and lucid narrative of this startling transition from civic republicanism to marketplace professionalism. He shows how, by 1900, everything had changed for the worse: doctors and lawyers were at each other's throats; medical jurisprudence had disappeared as a serious field of story for American physicians; the subject of insanity had become a legal nightmare; expert medical witnesses had become costly and often counterproductive; and an ever-increasing number of malpractice suits had intensified physicians' aversion to the courts. In short, the system we have taken largely for granted throughout the twentieth century was essentially in place, the product of a great nineteenth-century transition. Mohr uses a series of trials that captured the attention of the American people to illustrate key trends. In the Hendrickson trial of the 1850s, for example, what began as a trial to determine whether or not John Hendrickson had poisoned his wife Maria became a sensationalized debate--complete with a multitude of expert medical witnesses--challenging Dr. James Salisbury's ability to isolate the specific chemical used to poison Mrs. Hendrickson. And Mohr goes on to explore a variety of subjects: medical education, forensic toxicology, insanity, medical malpractice, the place of physicians in establishing America social policy, and the role of the AMA in medico-legal matters. For those who wonder about the relationship between the nation's physicians and its legal processes, here is a penetrating look at the origins of our inherited medico-legal system. Above all else, Mohr reminds us that our present system is not an inevitable product of universal forces but an outcome of of specific historical circumstances in the United States, and is likely to change.
