One of two new titles in Thames & Hudson’s ‘Big Idea’ series, this lucid analysis lays out the debate surrounding the escalating costs, both financial and ethical, of medicine in the modern world.
Modern medicine is exceptionally powerful, and has achieved unprecedented successes. But it comes at a price; individuals suffer from medicine’s failures, and the economic costs of medicine are now stratospheric. Have we got the balance wrong?
Is Medicine Still Good For Us? sets out the facts about our medical establishments in a clear, engaging style, interrogating the ethics of modern practices and the impact they have on all our lives.
