Darker Ribbon: Breast Cancer, Women, & Their Doctors in the Twentieth Century
Ellen Leopold (au). The first cultural history of breast cancer, this book examines the social attitudes & medical treatments that together defined the modern relationship between women with the disease & their doctors. At the heart of the book are 2 unpub. correspondences - -one between Barbara Mueller, a woman diagnosed with breast cancer 80 years ago, & her surgeon, William Halsted, father of the radical mastectomy; & the other between Rachel Carson, who was writing “Silent Spring” as she was battling breast cancer, & her personal physician George Crile, Jr. Tells how the cancer establishment got the active support of the American population, thus opening a new window on 20th-century medical history. “A path-breaking inquiry into the sociopolitical history of cancer.”
