Emeritus Professor Francis Barrymore “Barry” Smith, at the Australian National University, Canberra, is one of Australia’s most influential historians. His latest work is both a scholarly review, packed with an immense amount of well supported data, and a collection of largely ill founded opinions from the health professionals of the time, on the origin, causes and management of illness and disease.
