Item description for For Fear of Pain: British Surgery, 1790-1850 (Clio Medica 70) (Wellcome Series in the History of Medicine) by Peter Stanley...

Oh, you hurt me, Sir! are you going to do it again?
A patient, 1832

For Fear of Pain offers a social history of the operating room in Britain during the final decades of painful surgery.

It asks profound questions: how could surgeons operate upon conscious patients; how could patients submit? It presents a revisionist view of surgery, hygiene, nursing, military and naval surgery and the introduction of anaesthesia.

For Fear of Pain seeks to unite the clinical with the human. Drawing on fresh evidence, it offers powerful insights into the experience of painful surgery. It is populated by the characters, ambitions, and animosities of the great men of contemporary medicine, by the young men who grew into surgeons, and by the patients whose fortitude was so notable.

Dr Peter Stanley is Principal Historian at the Australian War Memorial, Australias national military museum. He is one of Australias leading military historians, publishing mainly in Australian and British military history, including The Remote Garrison, Tarakan, White Mutiny and Alamein: the Australian Story. For Fear of Pain is his fourteenth book.
