"Drawing on a wealth of previously overlooked archival material, 'Medical Monopoly' combines legal, medical, and business history to offer a sweeping new interpretation of the origins of the complex and often troubling relationship between the pharmaceutical industry and medical practice today. Joseph M. Gabriel provides the first detailed history of patent and trademark law as it relates to the nineteenth century pharmaceutical industry, as well as unique interpretation of medical ethics, therapeutic reform, and efforts to regulate the market in pharmaceuticals before World War I"--Dust jacket.
