Icones cerebri simiarum et quorundam mammalium rariorum.

Heidelberg: Mohr & Winter, 1821.

"Although a few more reports were published furing the next hundred years [after Tyson] it was Tiedemann alone who gave a more detailed account, on monkeys, in his... Icones Simiarum.... In monkeys he found the brain shorter, the sulci shallower, and both sulci and gyri far fewer than in the human brain....in monkeys, as also in the ape, he observed greater symmetry and regularity of the convolutional pattern than is generally seen in man (Meyer, Historical aspects of cerebral anatomy, 142).

The making and meaning of the Liber Floridus: A study of the original manuscript, Ghent, University Library, MS 92.

London: Harvey Miller Publishers, 2015.

"The Liber Floridus (1121), composed, written and illustrated by Canon Lambert of Saint-Omer, is the earliest illustrated encyclopedic compilation of the Latin West. Its autograph (Ghent, University Library, MS 92), a masterpiece of Romanesque book art and one of the most complicated manuscripts ever made, has been studied by the author for almost half a century. The present book is the culmination of this research and provides a detailed codicological and textual analysis, showing how this wonderful book was put together and which are the hidden ideas Lambert sought to develop in its hundreds of texts and pictures dealing with astronomy, geography, natural history, history, religion and countless other subjects" (publisher).

A mind that found itself.

New York & London: Longmans, Green & Co., 1908.

In 1900 Beers was confined to a private mental institution for depression and paranoia. He was later confined to another private hospital as well as a state institution. During those periods he experienced and witnessed serious maltreatment of patients by the staff of the hospitals. His autobiographical account of his hospitalization and the abuses he suffered was widely and favorably reviewed. It became a bestseller, and is still in print. Through this book Beers became the founder of the American mental hygiene movement. He gained the support of the medical profession and others  to reform the treatment of the mentally ill. In 1908 Beers founded the "Connecticut Society for Mental Hygiene", now Mental Health Connecticut. The following year he founded the "National Committee for Mental Hygiene", now called "Mental Health America", to continue reform of the treatment of the mentally ill.

The discovery of the art of the insane.

Princeton, NJ: Princeton University Press, 1989.

"This pioneering work, the first history of the art of the insane, scrutinizes changes in attitudes toward the art of the mentally ill from a time when it was either ignored or ridiculed, through the era when major figures in the art world discovered the extraordinary power of visual statements by psychotic artists such as Adolf Wlfli and Richard Dadd. John MacGregor draws on his dual training in art history and in psychiatry and psychoanalysis to describe not only this evolution in attitudes but also the significant influence of the art of the mentally ill on the development of modern art as a whole. His detailed narrative, with its strangely beautiful illustrations, introduces us to a fascinating group of people that includes the psychotic artists, both trained and untrained, and the psychiatrists, psychoanalysts, critics, and art historians who encountered their work" (publisher).

Government and public health in America.

Northampton, MA: Edward Elgar, 2007.

"How involved should the government be in American healthcare? Ronald Hamowy argues that to answer this pressing question, we must understand the genesis of the five main federal agencies charged with responsibility for our health: the Public Health Service, the Food and Drug Administration, the Veterans Administration, the National Institutes of Health, and Medicare. In examining these, he traces the growth of federal influence from its tentative beginnings in 1798 through the ambitious infrastructures of today - and offers startling insights on the current debate.

The author contends that until the twentieth century, governmental involvement in health care policy was nominal. With the sweeping food and drug reforms of 1906 and the Medicare amendments to Social Security in 1965, a whole new system of health care was brought to the American public. A careful analysis of the various programs generated by this legislation, however, shows a different picture of pet projects, budgetary lobbying, competitive bureaucracy and discord between the agencies and their opposition" (publisher).

A history of education in public health: Health that mocks doctors' rules.

Oxford & New York: Oxford University Press, 1991.

"This is the first book to examine and compare the history and contemporary problems of education for public health in Britain and the United States. In Britain, education for public health has been directed solely toward the medical profession; in the United States, independent schools of public health are open to physicians, engineers, nurses, lawyers, administrators and other professional groups. Despite their differences, these two systems continue to serve as models for public health schools and training programs throughout the world. This unique study provides a lucid view of the political, economic, and social forces which shape public health patterns. It will provoke and inform policy decisions about the future directions of education in all countries interested in building stronger and more effective public health systems" (publisher).
