Peter Bartrip is a well-established British sociolegal historian whose two previous (co-authored) books dealt with the longterm term rise and decline of workmen's compensation policy in nineteenth- and twentieth-century England. In this volume, he records the biography of the British Medical Journal, which began its 150-year career in the turbulent 1840s. Bartrip traces the Journal's evolution from its early days as one among many shaky provincial journals to its present status as almost the equal of the Lancet in international scientific reputation and as the official organ of the British Medical Association (BMA).
