Unnatural History: Breast Cancer and American Society
In the early nineteenth century in the United States, cancer in the breast was a rare disease. Now it seems that breast cancer is everywhere. Written by a medical historian who is also a doctor, Unnatural History tells how and why this happened. Rather than there simply being more disease, breast cancer has entered the bodies of so many American women and the concerns of nearly all the rest, mostly as a result of how we have detected, labeled, and responded to the disease. The book traces changing definitions and understandings of breast cancer, the experience of breast cancer sufferers, clinical and public health practices, and individual and societal fears.

Unnatural history: breast cancer and American societyUser Review - Book Verdict
A disease of such a private nature not all that long ago-one rarely discussed owing to its mostly female orientation and sexual implications-has become a national obsession and the focus of millions of dollars of research and thousands of miles of walking. Aronowitz (history of sociology and science, Univ. of Pennsylvania) intends to bridge "the chasm between our medical and cultural understandings of breast cancer and its direct biological impact." Providing extensive research and case histories, including that of author and environmentalist Rachel Carson, Aronowitz presents his findings here to a national audience. Though accessible to the educated layperson, this title is recommended for history of medicine collections.
