Jane E. Schultz, English, "Lead, Blood and Ink: Surgeons, Life Writing and Medical Status in the American Civil War." The unprecedented supply of wounded and sick bodies that confronted Civil War surgeons and the concomitant spectacle of death that gripped the public imagination ironically raised physicians' professional status and brought medicine to the center of a cultural dialogue once reserved for the clergy.

Price: Free.
