Recent Dissertations in the History of Medicine*

This issue inaugurates a new feature for the journal, a listing of recent doctoral dissertations in the history of medicine and health care. Most of the dissertation titles are self-explanatory; where needed a short description is added. The number in bold type uniquely identifies each thesis and is your key to further information about it. Abstracts can be viewed in Dissertation Abstracts, issued monthly and available at many libraries. Some libraries provide free access to dissertations and abstracts on line, including the capacity to download them in full. Most dissertations can also be ordered via Bell and Howell Information and Learning by calling (800) 521-0600 or writing to 300 N. Zeeb Rd., Ann Arbor, MI 48106. Dissertations can be ordered online through the Bell and Howell website at (Bell and Howell acquired University Microfilms in 1985.)
