The paper looks at "Origins of Pubic Health in America: Selected Essays 1820-1855", which is a collection of four essays that discuss the rise of US institutions of public health throughout the early to mid 1800s. The paper explains that the central purpose of these four works is to show that there was not only a multitude of health problems within urban areas, but that there was a diversity of medical and social opinions about how to solve these problems. The paper critically reviews the book but concludes that it is a substantially enriching resource for teaching American medical and public health history.
