The Death of Medicine by Piso Mojado

indie ebook cover

This is the true story of the doctor referred to as "The savior of women" and "The savior of mothers", an unsung hero whose name should be as familiar to us as Louis Pasteur. It is a story of how arrogance, politics, prejudice, and pride led to generations of women unnecessarily risking their lives during childbirth. But what relevance does nineteenth-century Vienna have for modern English-speaking readers? As the French claim: "The more things change, the more they remain the same."
This is also more than a book for women or for those who may undergo major medical procedures. It is an engaging detective novel, a warning about the need for separation between medicine and politics, a lesson of how the most brilliant scientists of one era chose reputation over the lives of the women in their care, an explanation of how the unresolved grievances of 1848 led to the world wars of the twentieth century, and a history of why the medicine of an earlier time died and how its deadly presence could come to life anywhere at any time.
