Synopsis

Governing Systems Modernity and the Making of Public Health in England, 1830--1910 by Tom Crook

When and how did public health become modern? In Governing Systems, Tom Crook offers a fresh answer to this question through an examination of Victorian and Edwardian England, long considered one of the critical birthplaces of modern public health. This birth, Crook argues, should be located not in the rise of professional expertise or a centralized bureaucratic state but in the contested formation and functioning of multiple systems, both human and material, administrative and technological. Theoretically ambitious yet empirically grounded, Governing Systems will be of interest to historians of modern public health and modern Britain, as well as to anyone interested in the complex gestation of the governmental dimensions of modernity.
