Shorter's experience as a historian has sensitized him to a wide range of social issues including those in medicine ( Bedside Manners: the troubled history of doctors and patients , LJ 3/1/86). The Health Century is a departure from social history and offers a panoramic view of American advances in health care and research since 1887. Designed as a companion volume to the PBS TV series beginning this month, it highlights contributions of individuals and public and private institutions. Although not comprehensive, it does not neglect less glamorous fields such as aging. The book's currency and depth are particularly evident in areas such as molecular research and biotechnology. Recommended for public libraries and general health collections. Mary Hemmings, McGill Univ., Medical Lib., Montreal
