Brought to bed: Childbearing in America, 1750-1950.

New York & Oxford: Oxford University Press, 1986.

Focuses on the traditional woman-centered home-birthing practices, their replacement by male doctors, and the movement from the home to the hospital.

Ironically, because of infection, infant and maternal mortality did not immediately decline.

Ancient histories of medicine: Essays in medical doxography and historiography in classical antiquity, edited by Philip J. van der Eijk.

Leiden: Brill, 1999.

"...focuses on the ways in which Greek and Latin authors viewed and wrote about the history of medicine in the ancient world. Special attention is given to medical doxography, i.e. the description of the characteristic doctrines of the great medical authorities of the past. The volume examines the various attitudes to the history of medicine adopted by a wide range of ancient writers (e.g. Aristotle, Galen, Celsus, Herophilus, Soranus, Oribasius, Caelius Aurelianus). It discusses the historical sense of ancient medicine, the variety of versions of the medical past that were created and the wide range of purposes and strategies which medico-historical writing served. It also deals with the question of the sources, the role of historiographical traditions and the variety of literary genres of ancient medico-historical writing."

The Alexandrian summaries of Galen’s On critical days. Editions and translations of the two versions of the JAWĀMIʿ, with an introduction and notes by Gerrit Bos and Y. Tzvi Langermann.

Leiden: Brill, 2015.

"Galen's impact on Islamic civilization, mainly on medicine but also on physics and philosophy, was enormous. His most important books were mediated through "summaries" which not only shortened, but in some cases also revised Galenic teachings. Several versions of these summaries exist, and their appreciation is critical for a proper understanding of the development of medieval science. This book presents the first editions, translations, and studies of the remaining summaries to On Critical Days. In Galenic theory, fevers develop towards a crisis which will determine the fate of a patient" (publisher).

Leiden: Brill, 2009.

"...the first detailed analysis of an immensely popular 13th c. Arabic guide for pharmacists, from a time in which Jewish physicians and pharmacists worked alongside Muslim and Christian practioners. Minhāj al-dukkān ("How to manage a pharmacy"), by Abū ʾl-Munā al-Kūhīn al-ʿAṭṭār (fl. 1260) is the first attempt to explore the full spectrum of pharmacy in the medieval Arabic world: identification of the materia medica and methods of preparation; pharmacy's place within the sciences and particularly its relationship with medicine; the social position of the pharmacist and his role in the marketplace and the hospital; the economics of pharmacy; legal aspects of pharmacy; and the image of the pharmacist in literature and drama."

Mediaeval prognosis and astrology: A working edition of the Aggregationes de crisi et creticis diebus, with introduction and English summary.

Cambridge, England: Wellcome Unit for the History of Medicine, 1991.

This pre-Galenic astrological text by an unknown author from the later part of the 13th century concerns astrological prognostication. It was based upon Book III of Galen's De diebus criticis, but provided a "handy shortcut" to Galen's more convoluted text. Using it a skilled astrologer-physician could in theory calculate the critical days of an illness according to the length of the phases of the moon.
