AUTHOR

Lerner, Barron H.

SUMMARY

[A] scrupulously documented...excellent book...,THE BREAST CANCER WARS...is essentially a work of social history, in which [Lerner] describes the inner world of professional prestige and group conformity. But he also gives a very clear account of the clinical and theoretical aspects of breast cancer. Unlike most other social historians, he is an experienced bedside physician and clinical teacher of medical students, and his perceptiveness shows in his understanding of even the most pig-headed of the characters in his book, who after all believed they were doing the best for their patients. Moreover, he resists the temptation to look back in self righteous scorn on an earlier time when the concept of the patient's autonomy would not have occurred to the most enlightened of physicians."Lerner, Barron H. is the author of 'Breast Cancer Wars Hope, Fear, and the Pursuit of a Cure in Twentieth-Century America', published 2003 under ISBN 9780195161069 and ISBN 0195161068.
