    Almost daily we hear news stories, advertisements, and scientific reports that promise genetic medicine will make us live longer, enable doctors to identify and treat diseases before they start, and individualize our medical care. But surprisingly, a century ago eugenicists were making the same promises. The "Science of Human Perfection" traces the history of the promises of medical genetics and of the medical dimension of eugenics. The book also considers social and ethical issues that cast troublesome shadows over these fields. Keeping his focus on America, science historian Nathaniel Comfort introduces the community of scientists, physicians, and public health workers who have contributed to the development of medical genetics from the nineteenth century to today. He argues that medical genetics is closely related to eugenics, and indeed the two cannot be fully understood separately. He also carefully examines how the desire to relieve suffering and to improve ourselves genetically, though noble, may be subverted. History makes clear that as patients and consumers we must take ownership of genetic medicine, using it intelligently, knowledgeably, and sceptically, lest pernicious interests trump our own.

    The Quaker philanthropist Samuel Tuke (1784–1857) was the grandson of William Tuke, the founder in 1796 of the Retreat at York, a pioneering asylum for the insane which championed compassionate care and the abolition of physical restraints. Samuel succeeded his grandfather in the management of the Retreat in 1822, but before that was already active in promoting its principles of humane treatment, and publicising the appalling conditions in which 'pauper lunatics', whose families could not afford better care for them, were confined. The publicity generated by his pamphlets and letters to newspapers drew public attention to the problem, and led to a reforming Yorkshire magistrate inviting Tuke to advise on the building of a new asylum at Wakefield. This 1815 book of 'practical hints' was intended to guide the potential architects to offer both inmates and attendants an environment which promoted physical and mental health.

    The surgeon Thomas Pettigrew (1791–1865) was interested in all aspects of antiquity. He gained fame in society through his mummy-unwrapping parties, and his History of Egyptian Mummies is also reissued in the Cambridge Library Collection. His interest in the early history of medicine is evidenced by this edition of a work by John Hall, which was published by the Percy Society in 1844. Hall was a surgeon, born 1529/30, who published this work in 1565 as an appendix to his translation of the work of the thirteenth-century surgeon Lanfranc of Milan. Little is known about Hall except that he practised medicine in Maidstone, Kent, and had published acrostic verses. He was vociferous in his indignation against fraudulent medicine, and this work describes nine incidents where quacks, both male and female, had visited Maidstone and offered miraculous cures to the gullible: Hall himself was involved in prosecuting some of them.

    Still the leading cause of death worldwide, heart disease challenges researchers, clinicians, and patients alike. Each day, thousands of patients and their doctors make decisions about coronary angioplasty and bypass surgery. In "Broken Hearts" David S. Jones sheds light on the nature and quality of those decisions. He describes the debates over what causes heart attacks and the efforts to understand such unforeseen complications of cardiac surgery as depression, mental fog, and stroke. Why do doctors and patients overestimate the effectiveness and underestimate the dangers of medical interventions, especially when doing so may lead to the overuse of medical therapies? To answer this question, Jones explores the history of cardiology and cardiac surgery in the United States and probes the ambiguities and inconsistencies in medical decision making. Based on extensive reviews of medical literature and archives, this historical perspective on medical decision making and risk highlights personal, professional, and community outcomes.

    Product description

    Review

     

    "Practicing Psychodynamic Therapy is an excellent complement to Summers and Barber's earlier evidence-based guide, Psychodynamic Therapy. The psychodynamically formulated case studies are fascinating, and beautifully demonstrate the struggles and learning curve of novice therapists, describing in a refreshingly honest way their successful--and less-than-successful--interventions with patients who suffer from obsessionality, depression, trauma, and more. The down-to-earth and clear exposition of both theory and clinical cases makes this an exceptionally valuable book for beginning therapists, as well as undergraduate and graduate students being exposed to psychodynamic concepts and practice for the first time. This volume convincingly dispels any myths about the relevance of psychodynamic therapy for the practice of psychotherapy today."--Stanley B. Messer, PhD, Graduate School of Applied and Professional Psychology, Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey

    "This compelling, clearly written book addresses important questions for clinicians starting out in the world of mental health: What is psychodynamic psychotherapy? Why should a well-informed clinician learn it? How does it work? Jargon-free clinical cases--written by clinicians from varied training backgrounds who utilize a wide range of psychodynamic techniques--depict treatment with patients who suffer from panic disorder, major depression, combinations of depression and anxiety, and personality disorders. A 'must read' for clinicians of all orientations, this book will help to solidify psychodynamic therapy and techniques in the contemporary psychotherapeutic landscape."--Barbara Milrod, MD, Department of Psychiatry, Weill Cornell Medical College

    "Referencing the emerging body of research on the efficaciousness of psychodynamic theory, this volume is organized around 12 cases presented by early-career psychiatrists, psychologists, and social workers. The diverse cases bring to light the unique relationship between psychotherapist and client and offer an in-depth look at individual approaches taken within a psychodynamic framework. Each of six core psychodynamic problems identified by Summers and Barber is covered in the cases. With its evidence-based focus, carefully selected cases, and emphasis on creating a change-oriented therapeutic alliance, this casebook will be an invaluable resource for mental health professionals for years to come."--Aaron T. Beck, MD, University Professor Emeritus of Psychiatry, Perelman School of Medicine, University of Pennsylvania

    "This accessible clinical casebook illustrates how patients and therapists can work together to address and resolve the most common core problems encountered in therapeutic practice. Twelve refreshingly candid treatment narratives demonstrate specific techniques for working through these problems at different stages of therapy, offering useful strategies for catalyzing and assessing change. Both novice and experienced clinicians will find much of use in this book."--Diana Diamond, PhD, Doctoral Program in Clinical Psychology, City University of New York, and Senior Fellow, Personality Disorders Institute, Weill Medical College of Cornell University

    "Summers and Barber have gathered a series of eloquent and detailed cases that illustrate and enrich the approach elaborated in their earlier book, Psychodynamic Therapy: A Guide to Evidence-Based Practice. In this casebook, contributing authors openly share their clinical experience in a personal and candid fashion, offering a window into the very private relationships that develop between therapists and their patients. Indispensable for students of psychotherapy and their teachers, the book provides a rich opportunity for clinical learning and reflection."--Eve Caligor, MD, Department of Psychiatry, Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons

    "Therapists searching for psychodynamic concepts and techniques that will help them better conceptualize their patients' problems will benefit greatly from this book. The book begins with a summary of the authors' framework and then follows with 12 extensive case studies in which their model is carefully applied, assisting clinicians in identifying and working with each patient's core psychodynamic patterns. This is an outstanding, essential book for all dynamically oriented clinicians."--Walter N. Stone, MD, Department of Psychiatry (Emeritus), University of Cincinnati School of Medicine

    The physician and botanist William Woodville (1752–1805), a proponent of inoculation against smallpox, was in 1791 appointed physician to the London Smallpox and Inoculation Hospital. Five years later, Edward Jenner announced his experiments with vaccination - inoculation with the much milder cowpox, which conveyed immunity to smallpox without the attendant risk of catching the often fatal disease. Woodville eagerly pursued trials using vaccination, and published the results in this 1799 work, which describes two hundred cases where patients (usually children) were vaccinated with matter obtained from either cows or other cowpox sufferers, and supplies a table of the patterns of infection from person to person. Most of these patients were later tested by inoculation with smallpox, and none caught the disease. This demonstration of the safety and efficacy of vaccination led to its much wider adoption, to which Woodville gave practical support in both England and France.

(His History of Egyptian Mummies is also reissued in the Cambridge Library Collection.) His interest in the early history of medicine is evidenced by this work, published in 1844, which describes the various forms of superstition which the science of medicine had always attracted since ancient times. Pettigrew considers alchemy and astrology, and the use of talismans, amulets and charms, as well as the history of Egyptian, Greek and Roman medicine, and some modern developments, including 'sympathetical cures' and the rejoining of severed fingers and ears. A chapter is devoted to the belief in the efficacy of the 'royal touch' against the King's Evil (scrofula), and another to the seventeenth-century faith healer Valentine Greatrakes, of whose alleged cures Pettigrew takes a robustly sceptical view.

    This joint reissue comprises two works on military medicine, providing instruction on the treatment of ailments common to soldiers, and methods for preventing their occurrence. The title work, written by Charles Alexander Gordon (1821–99) and published in 1873, is followed by A Guide to Health for the Use of Soldiers by fellow surgeon R. C. Eaton (1842–1902), which first appeared in 1890. Intended to be read by infantrymen and officers, both works offer succinct and practical advice on topics ranging from malaria to drunkenness. The texts take slightly different approaches in their presentation of advice: Gordon adopts a crisp and formal style, while Eaton incorporates instructive medical facts in his brief yet fluent explanations. Together, the works provide an effective exposition of problems and practicalities that would assume tremendous significance decades later in the trenches of the First World War.

    In 1997, Stanley B. Prusiner received a Nobel Prize, the world's most prestigious award for achievement in physiology or medicine. That he was the sole recipient of the award for the year was entirely appropriate, for his struggle to identify the agent responsible for ravaging the brains of animals suffering from scrapie and mad cow disease, and of humans with Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease, had been waged largely alone and in some cases in the face of strenuous disagreement. In this book, Prusiner tells the remarkable story of his discovery of prions – infectious proteins that replicate and cause disease but surprisingly contain no genetic material – and reveals how superb and meticulous science is actually practised using talented teams of researchers who persevere. He recounts the frustrations and rewards of years of research and offers fascinating portraits of his peers as they raced to discover the causes of fatal brain diseases. Prusiner's hypothesis, once considered heresy, now stands as accepted science and the basis for developing diagnoses and eventual cures. He closes with a meditation on the legacy of his discovery: What will it take to cure Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, Lou Gehrig's and other devastating diseases of the brain?

    The surgeon and anatomist John Hunter (1728–93) left a famous legacy in the Hunterian Museum of medical specimens now in the Royal College of Surgeons, and in this collection of his writings, edited by James Palmer, with a biography by Drewry Ottley, published between 1835 and 1837. The first four volumes are of text, and the larger Volume 5 contains plates. Hunter had begun his career as a demonstrator in the anatomy classes of his brother William, before qualifying as a surgeon. He regarded surgery as evidence of failure - the mutilation of a patient who could not be cured by other means - and his studies of anatomy and natural history were driven by his belief that it was necessary to understand the normal physiological processes before attempting to cure the abnormal ones. Volume 5 contains the plates which accompany the works in the other volumes, along with notes.

    A physician and medical reformer enthused by the scientific and cultural progress of the Enlightenment as it took hold in Britain, Thomas Percival (1740–1804) wrote on many topics, but he was particularly concerned about public health issues arising from the factory conditions of the Industrial Revolution. Calling for improved standards of care, he believed that the working poor should be treated the same as wealthy private clients. Following a disastrous dispute in 1792 which closed the Manchester Infirmary's Fever Hospital during an epidemic, Percival was asked to draft regulations on professional medical conduct. In 1794 he privately circulated a tract, Medical Jurisprudence, which he later revised for this 1803 publication. Based on Hippocratic and Christian principles, Percival's work is considered the first modern formulation of doctor-patient etiquette. His Essays Medical and Experimental (revised edition, 1772–3) and the four volumes of his collected works (1807) are also reissued in this series.

    For those engaged in military conflict at the end of the nineteenth century, infection and disease were still as formidable enemies as the guns of an opposing army. Yet advances in sanitary science and understanding continued to help officers keep their troops in optimal fighting condition. After serving as an assistant surgeon for the Union Army during the American Civil War, Alfred Alexander Woodhull (1837–1921) began to publish on the topics of hygiene and sanitation, and how they related to military effectiveness. Arguably his most important publication, the present work was based on lectures he delivered at the US Infantry and Cavalry School. It covers such varied topics as the selection of men, uniform design, and the management of waste. First published in 1890, it was recommended as a textbook by the surgeon general of the time. Reissued here is the revised third edition, which appeared in 1904.

    Advances in medicine have brought us the stethoscope, artificial kidneys, and computerized health records. They have also changed the doctor-patient relationship. This book explores how the technologies of medicine are created and how we respond to the problems and successes of their use. Stanley Joel Reiser, MD, walks us through the ways medical innovations exert their influence by discussing a number of selected technologies, including the X-ray, ultrasound, and respirator. Reiser creates a new understanding of thinking about how health care is practiced in the United States and thereby suggests new methods to effectively meet the challenges of living with technological medicine. As healthcare reform continues to be an intensely debated topic in America, Technological Medicine shows us the pros and cons of applying technological solutions health and illness.

    Review

     

    "As a reader, you are in good hands. The authors not only have used these methods themselves, they have guided hundreds of therapists through the process. The exercises, worksheets, and instructive text are all road-tested and designed to help you have the best experience possible using CBT for self-practice. The self-reflection exercises integrated into this book help you maximize your learning….Along the way, your efforts are likely to kindle new depths of meaning and new ways of being to help you become a better therapist and a happier person."--from the Foreword by Christine A. Padesky, PhD, Center for Cognitive Therapy, Huntington Beach, California

    “This terrific book places direct personal experience of CBT right at the heart of the training process. SP/SR has been an enduring passion for Bennett-Levy and his international team of authors for more than 15 years, and this steady commitment shines through in the book’s integration of clearly explained theory, evidence, and lucidly designed and written practical modules. Encouraging us to apply CBT concepts and methods to ourselves, the book highlights our common humanity--because we and our patients have the same imperfect human minds, and we too can liberate ourselves from unhelpful old patterns in just the same way. A radical and refreshing approach!”--Melanie Fennell, PhD, Oxford Mindfulness Centre, Department of Psychiatry, University of Oxford, United Kingdom 

    "This workbook skillfully and compassionately walks mental health trainees and experienced practitioners alike through the steps of applying the evidence-based practices of CBT to themselves for professional and personal growth. Using well-crafted written and experiential exercises, Bennett-Levy et al. help the reader to recognize self-limiting 'old ways of being' and to develop and maintain 'new ways of being.' The result is an increase in empathy for clients who struggle with the therapeutic process (which is arduous!) and an enhanced congruency between what therapists offer their clients and how they live their own lives. The book will be of great benefit in graduate training, in group supervision, as a professional development project, or as part of a CBT retreat with colleagues."--Cory F. Newman, PhD, ABPP, Director, Center for Cognitive Therapy, Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania

    "The authors have done CBT a great service. Good teachers know their subject inside out; therapists who use CBT tools to understand their own vulnerabilities and strengths--and change long-standing habits of thinking and behavior--will be better at teaching these tools to clients. Clients sense this authenticity. The authors show how to imbue CBT with compassion, humanity, and the humility that comes from direct experience of how hard change can be."--Willem Kuyken, PhD, Department of Psychiatry, University of Oxford, United Kingdom

    "This book builds on what we already know about working with clients: learning through experience is far more valuable than being told something or reading about it. Of course, this principle applies just as much to the therapist. The book will likely be helpful to clinicians at all career stages who wish to improve their ability to help others or who are working with challenging clients."--Adam S. Radomsky, PhD, Department of Psychology, Concordia University, Canada

    "I applaud the authors for this excellent book. CBT offers highly effective tools for change, but convincing clients to use them is not always easy. There is no doubt that personal practice with the techniques will enhance the therapist's ability to motivate clients. Therapists will be better able to respond to queries convincingly and preempt any problems in implementation. Importantly, SP/SR is likely to increase practitioners' empathy and respect for clients, thus enhancing the therapeutic alliance and improving outcomes."--Analise O'Donovan, PhD, School of Applied Psychology, Griffith University, Australia

    "For years, we have been practicing and teaching CBT from the outside in: theoretical underpinnings, procedures, protocols, and techniques. At long last, we have a book that enhances CBT practice through a systematic process of self-practice and self-reflection. The authors have done an exceptional job of fostering an experiential journey through which understanding of the therapist's self and of patients can be developed via an emphasis on process, strengths, and culture. This book should be read by all CBT practitioners and trainers."--Chee-Wing Wong, PsychD, Departments of Psychiatry and Psychology, The Chinese University of Hong Kong

    "A long-awaited resource for clinicians working with patients with PTSD. Experienced and new clinicians will find this book an unparalleled guide for delivering every step of CPT. This is one of the most detailed and practical PTSD treatment guides available."--Richard A. Bryant, PhD, Scientia Professor, School of Psychology, University of New South Wales, Australia

    "This indispensable book from three of the top experts in the world presents everything you could possibly want to know about CPT. Beginning with a strong theoretical chapter and moving deftly to a comprehensive review of published clinical trials, this very accessible work considers moderators of treatment, how to address comorbid conditions, patient preparation, and the CPT therapeutic process. The centerpiece of the book is the CPT manual, which offers superb guidance to any practitioner who wishes to utilize this powerful therapeutic approach."--Matthew J. Friedman, MD, PhD, Senior Advisor, National Center for PTSD, U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs; Professor of Psychiatry and Pharmacology and Toxicology, Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth

    "An impressive trio of experts, Resick, Monson, and Chard have created a state-of-the-art manual for CPT, currently considered a critical skill for clinicians.

Containing step-by-step instruction, troubleshooting tips for common hurdles, and guidance for treating specific populations, this manual is essential equipment for mental health providers of all stripes."--Carrie H. Kennedy, PhD, ABPP, Medical Service Corps, U.S. Navy

    "Without question, this is the single best source on CPT. In addition to providing a treatment manual, the authors present a comprehensive theoretical overview and data supporting CPT’s effectiveness. This book should be on the desk of any clinician who aims to deliver evidence-based treatment for PTSD."--Bret A. Moore, PsyD, ABPP, former military psychologist

    Review

    "A 'must read' for everyone in the field of psychotherapy or behavior therapy, as well as students entering the profession. The significantly revised second edition reviews the growing body of research support for ACT and presents new developments in case conceptualization and treatment implementation."--David H. Barlow, PhD, ABPP, Professor of Psychology and Psychiatry and Founder and Director Emeritus, Center for Anxiety and Related Disorders, Boston University

    "Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Second Edition, presents new data and clinical insights and expresses the theoretical foundations of ACT in a fresh way. The original book was an extraordinary achievement; the second edition is even better. It shows exactly how basic science and therapeutic application can combine in the service of new and effective methods to alleviate suffering. This book is essential reading for all students and practitioners in clinical psychology, counseling, and psychiatry."--Mark Williams, DPhil, Emeritus Professor of Clinical Psychology, University of Oxford, United Kingdom

    "Presents an influential approach to helping clients accept their thoughts and feelings and overcome experiential avoidance....The authors delineate a solid clinical rationale and provide clear guidelines for ACT implementation. A real strength of this book is the chapters on each stage of treatment, which detail a wealth of strategies and interventions and include excellent exercises, therapist-client dialogues, and pointers for practice."--Leslie S. Greenberg, PhD, Distinguished Research Professor, Department of Psychology, York University, Canada

    "In the dynamic field of mindfulness-based therapies, this impressive book is a landmark contribution. The authors offer a sophisticated and wise approach to human transformation, one that has been validated by clinical research and honed by a wide range of clinical applications. This second edition is ideally suited for graduate-level courses in psychotherapy as well as for mental health practitioners. It offers a balance of rich theoretical context and clear, accessible guidance for applying ACT to a range of emotional and behavioral difficulties."--Tara Brach, PhD, author of Radical Acceptance

    "This second edition is perfectly timed, given the explosion of developments in the underlying theoretical principles and empirical research associated with this approach to treatment. The book is beautifully written and is an outstanding resource for clinician and researcher alike, whether novice or experienced. The principles of functional contextualism and relational frame theory are laid out in an easily understandable yet in-depth manner. The book's presentation of the core principles of ACT--including practical guidance for implementing them in clinical practice--is simply superb. This is an excellent text for graduate students in clinical psychology."--Michelle G.

    Newborn babies are examined at around 6 to 72 hours after their birth to rule out major congenital abnormalities and reassure the parents that their baby is healthy. This practical text is a step-by-step guide for all practitioners who undertake this clinical examination. It is particularly valuable for midwives and nurses undertaking Examination of the Newborn modules as well as a useful reference work for those already performing this role. It provides midwives and other practitioners involved in neonatal examination with a comprehensive guide to the holistic examination of the newborn infant.

    Examination of the Newborn encourages the reader to view each mother and baby as unique, taking into account their experiences preconceptually, antenatally and through childbirth. The text covers:

    • the role of the first examination as a screening tool;

    • normal fetal development;

    • parents’ concerns and how to respond to them;

    • the impact of antenatal diagnostic screening;

    • the events of labour and birth;

    • the clinical examination of the neonate;

    • the identification and management of congenital abnormalities;

    • accountability and legal issues.

    This new edition is thoroughly revised throughout to meet current Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC), General Medical Council (GMC) and National Screening Committee standards. It reflects the new standards and key performance indicators (KPIs) from Public Health England (2016b). Case scenarios, model answers, questions and further reading help the reader to apply the content to their own practice.

    The most famous nineteenth-century British reformer of care for the mentally ill and disabled was undoubtedly John Conolly, whose 1856 Treatment of the Insane without Mechanical Restraints is also reissued in this series. However, Conolly's work at the Hanwell Asylum near London was based in part on the pioneering efforts of Edward Parker Charlesworth (1781–1853) and his younger colleague Robert Gardiner Hill (1811–78), who had already (and controversially) abolished physical restraint in the Lincoln Asylum by 1838. Conolly is known to have visited and been impressed by the Lincoln hospital, but his supporters, and his own book, suggested his primacy in the field, and Hill published this work in 1857 in order to refute Conolly's claims. The first part consists of Hill's account of his and Charlesworth's reforms at Lincoln, and the second reprints many of the letters and pamphlets which focused on the topic during this period.

    After training to be a doctor at the London School of Medicine for Women, Flora Murray (1869–1923) became an active member of the Women's Social and Political Union. At the outbreak of the First World War, she and her fellow suffragists laid down their banners and sought to aid the Allied war effort. Working within the newly formed Women's Hospital Corps, Murray and her colleague Louisa Garrett Anderson (1873–1943) overcame initial prejudice and established two military hospitals in France in the period 1914–15. Their success prompted an invitation from the War Office to open the Endell Street Military Hospital in London, staffed entirely by women. First published in 1920, Murray's account, illustrated with numerous photographs, records important steps in furthering the acceptance of women in the medical profession. For female doctors, surgeons and nurses, the war provided not only the 'occasion for service' but also 'great professional opportunities'.

    An army surgeon and later deputy inspector of hospitals in Jamaica, James Dillon Tully (1785–1827) witnessed at first hand the spread of the plague through the Mediterranean in the early nineteenth century. In particular, he was instrumental in controlling the disease in Corfu and Cephalonia. This work, first published in 1821, is his account of the outbreak and the response to it after its arrival by ship in Malta. Tully's goal in writing the book was to educate the public about the plague, in response to doubts over the nature of this recent outbreak. He focuses on describing the disease, the manner by which it spread, and methods of treating and controlling it. Stressing the historical effectiveness of quarantine and spelling out its implementation in the Mediterranean, this work is a detailed and methodical source which remains of interest to researchers in the history of medicine and epidemiology.

    The physician and author John Ayrton Paris (1785–1856), several of whose other medical and popular works have been reissued in the Cambridge Library Collection, published this book on the significance of diet to health in 1826. In the first part, Paris discusses the physiology of the digestive system, and the way that sensations of hunger, thirst and fullness are conveyed. In the second part, he considers types of food and drink, and methods of cookery. Paris suggests the times of day at which different meals should be taken, and the types and amounts of food and drink to be consumed. Part 3 deals with the problems of indigestion. A table of matters for investigation is given which covers the patient's lifestyle and habits as well as their immediate physical symptoms, and Paris firmly makes the point that changes of lifestyle are at least as important as medicine in effecting a cure.

    To its proponents, the ultrasound scanner is a safe, reliable, and indispensable aid to diagnosis. Its detractors, on the other hand, argue that its development and use are driven by the technological enthusiasms of doctors and engineers (and the commercial interests of manufacturers) and not by concern to improve the clinical care of women. In some U.S. states, an ultrasound scan is now required by legislation before a woman can obtain an abortion, adding a new dimension to an already controversial practice. "Imaging and Imagining the Fetus" engages both the development of a modern medical technology and the concerted critique of that technology. Malcolm Nicolson and John Fleming relate the technical and social history of ultrasound imaging – from early experiments in Glasgow in 1956 through wide deployment in the British hospital system by 1975 to its ubiquitous use in maternity clinics throughout the developed world by the end of the twentieth century. Obstetrician Ian Donald and engineer Tom Brown created ultrasound technology in Glasgow, where their prototypes were based on the industrial flaw detector, an instrument readily available to them in the shipbuilding city. As a physician, Donald supported the use of ultrasound for clinical purposes, and as a devout High Anglican he imbued the images with moral significance. He opposed abortion – decisions about which were increasingly guided by the ultrasound technology he pioneered – and he occasionally used ultrasound images to convince pregnant women not to abort the fetuses they could now see. "Imaging and Imagining the Fetus" explores why earlier innovators failed where Donald and Brown succeeded. It also shows how ultrasound developed into a "black box" technology whose users can fully appreciate the images they produce but do not, and have no need to, understand the technology, any more than do users of computers. These "images of the fetus may be produced by machines", the authors write, "but they live vividly in the human imagination".
