Focussing on the histories of three ailments -- cumulative trauma disorders (especially carpal tunnel syndrome), occupational back pain, and noise-induced hearing loss -- this book provides "a fascinating account of how physicians and society come to recognize emerging diseases. Beautifully illustrated with splendid historical examples." -- Philip J. Landrigan, M.D., Mount Sinai School of Medicine "A major contribution to the historical sociology of industrial illness." -- Roy Porter, Wellcome Institute for the History of Medicine
