    This work is intended for use by historians as a basis for the study of the interrelationships between medicine and the law in society. To emphasize that medicine has found a structured, although different, role today, the first section deals with pre-1500 relations. These dissertations show us the place of the physician and surgeon in those times and especially the difficulties in licensing and controlling the unauthorized practice of the profession. The remainder of the book deals with medical licensure through the last century in England and the United States, medical malpractice, public health legislation, and forensic medicine.
