Medicine, Law and Public Policy in Scotland: c. 1850-1990

Mark Freemen, Eleanor Gordon, and Krista Maglen


This book amrks the contribution of Anne Crowther to scholarship in British history. Focusing on Scotland, it draws together the three main strands of Professor Crowther’s academic research – welfare, medicine and legal history – and reflects the range of her historical scholarship. Based on original research, the essays in this book examine important developments in key Scottish institutions, question enduring myths about the nature of Scottish legal and medical practice, and explore the intersections between medicine, the law and public policy.

Keywords: Anne Crowther, Public policy, Welfare, Medicine, Law, Scotland
