Examining the transition in medical care provision (at least for literate, middle- to upper-class white Protestants) from lay healers to professional physicians, Murphy comprehensively surveys both popular and professional healthcare literature and finds that health publicists transformed medical care by promoting a reallocation of duties, in a crusade reflecting larger social and cultural trends toward new gender and family roles.
