Books By Author Carsten Timmermann
History of Lung Cancer, Hardback (November 2013)
The first comprehensive history of lung cancer from around 1800 to the present day; a story of doctors and patients, hopes and fears, expectations and frustrations. Where most histories of medicine focus on progress, Timmermann asks what happens when medical progress does not seem to make much difference.
Cancer Patients, Cancer Pathways, Hardback (October 2012)» View all books by Carsten Timmermann
Eleven essays by historians and sociologists examine cancer research and treatment as everyday practice in post-war Europe and North America. These are not stories of inevitable medical progress and obstacles overcome, but of historical contingencies, cultural differences, hope, and often disappointed expectations.
