Bittersweet: Diabetes, Insulin, and the Transformation of IllnessBy Chris Feudtner

Binding: Hardcover

Product Description: In this first book-length study of the history of diabetes in the 20th-century U.S., Feudtner draws on the medical archives and letters exchanged between patients or their family members and the staff of the Joslin Diabetes Center in Boston to explore how medical intervention and cultural change have affected diabetics' lives. Transmuted by the medical intervention from its natural course to one that is uncharted, diabetes, according to Feudtner, demonstrates the complex ironies of medical progress.
