Health and the Modern Home explores shifting and contentious debates about the impact of the domestic environment on health in the modern period. Drawing on recent scholarship, Jackson exposes the socio-political context in which the physical and emotional environment of the modern home and family became implicated in the maintenance of health and in the aetiology and pathogenesis of diverse psychological and physical conditions.
