Listed below are links to weblogs that reference Medical Humanities Lexicon: The McKeown Thesis:


Yet another very helpful and articulate introduction to an important concept, argument or theory in the "medical humanities lexicon." I know very little about McKeown's thesis, so the bibliography should also prove useful. Thank you.

The American Journal of Public Health 92, 2002, in fact held a special issue on the "McKeown Thesis," and presented a few papers, including one by Szreter, that tackled the core of the debates. Its a worthwhile read, and provides different viewpoints on the issues at hand.

Ed Kass one of the most prolific student of antibiotics of the last century concluded the same with 20th century data in a paper called social change & infectious disease in 1971.

He got so much flack he never returned o the subject.
