    Tee L. Guidotti, MD, MPH
    Susan G. Rose, JD, MPH

    Science on the Witness Stand will be a welcome addition to the library of any medical or legal professional whose work involves presenting medical evidence in a legal context.

    The book offers a complete look at the factors to be considered in a variety of legal proceedings, from claims adjudication to liability and other medical/legal proceedings. It begins by introducing an innovative approach the authors call evidence-based medical dispute resolution, then moves on to discuss the elements and logic to be presented in a medical opinion, the principles and procedures of civil litigation, and the jurist's view of scientific evidence. Issues of causality and admissibility of evidence and testimony are presented, along with individualized medical evaluation and personal risk, impairment, and evidentiary needs in environmental law and occupational health law.

  • Exploring the Dangerous Trades

    Alice Hamilton, MD

    Alice Hamilton, the first woman appointed to the faculty of Harvard Medical School, said she chose medicine as a career not because she was scientifically minded but because, as a doctor, she could go anywhere she pleased and be quite sure that she would be useful. Her commitment to making her life count led her to combined roles as scientific researcher, skillful negotiator, labor organizer, and vocal and tireless crusader for social reform. In Exploring the Dangerous Trades, she recounts the story of her remarkable life with wit and forthrightness. Includes Foreword by noted occupational medicine historian Jean Spencer Felton, MD.
