A Modern History of the Stomach: Gastric Illness, Medicine and British Society, 1800-1950by Ian Miller
This is the first exploration of the relationship between the abdomen and British society between 1800 and 1950. Miller demonstrates how the framework of ideas established in medicine related to gastric illness often reflected wider social issues including industrialization and the impact of wartime anxiety upon the inner body.
