Book Review


"Prescribed: Writing, Filling, Using, and Abusing the Prescription in Modern America" by Green, Jeremy A.; Watkins, Elizabeth Siegel. John Hopkins Univ. Press, 2012

Prescribed is the first authoritative look at the history of the prescription itself, and a groundbreaking book that explores the politics of therapeutic authority and the relations between knowledge and practice in modern medicine.

Per reviewer Scott D. Grimwood, Prescribed provides the reader with a much better understanding of how we have gotten to our current system of managing, and mismanaging, prescription drugs in the United States.
