A new politics of medicine is emerging from the changing relationship between medicine, society and the state. It is characterized by informed health consumers, an interventionist state, and a mobilized medical profession. With the media now its constant companion, medicine has been abrubtly politicized by a range of pressures. Yet the continuities of its re-energized institutions remain intact and with them the sustaining realities of medical power.
