Thomas Robert Malthus’s reputation has lately been rehabilitated in the fields of social biology, demography, environmentalism, and economics. In the midst of this current interest and with the chance to mark the occasion of the bicentenary of the first edition of the Essay on Population (1798), the contributors to this volume take this timely opportunity to examine the historical conditions in which Malthus constructed his theory, and in which the concept of a ’Malthusian’ and ’Neo-Malthusian’ philosophy first emerged. The essays redress the balance between Mal

Visiting relatives and friends in medical institutions is a common practice in all corners of the world. People probably go into hospitals as a visitor more frequently than they do as a patient. Permeable Walls is the first book devoted to the history of hospital and asylum visiting and deflects attention from medical history’s more traditionally studied constituencies, patients and doctors. Covering the eighteenth to the late twentieth centuries, and taking case studies from around the globe, the authors demonstrate that hospitals and asylums could be remarkably permeable institutions.

Philosophic Whigs explores the links between scientific activity and politics in the early 19th century. Through a study of the Edinburgh medical school, L.S. Jacyna analyzes the developments in medical education in the contexts of the social and political relationships within the Whig communityFor many of these "philosophical Whigs" intellectual and scientific activity was perceived as a means of expressing a political identity. However, this identity often showed through into the science itself as some of the physiological theories presented by the medical authors present a characteristica

James Jurin (1684-1750) occupied a central place in the medical and scientific circles of Augustan and Georgian England. His dispassionate yet forceful advocacy of smallpox inoculation using an innovative statistical approach brought him widespread recognition both in Britain and abroad. He was Secretary to the Royal Society for seven years and participated vigorously in the most important scientific debates of the period. Jurin’s correspondence, recently made available to the public, provides rich material for the study of eighteenth-century natural philosophy and medicine, especially

In the inter-war years there was much debate in Britain as to whether the best path to post-World War I regeneration would be found in the promises of science and technology, in continued and increased efficiency, in specialization and professionalization or whether the future of the nation depended on a rediscovery of older (and more authentic) ways of doing things, on a defiant anti-modernism. This debate on Britain’s future was often conducted in terms of Englishness and the rebirth of a lost, more spiritual, village England. However, ’Englishness’ also entered inter-war
