Promotional Information

Never before have we been able to consult a reference text on the school of German bacteriology and the man Koch. This book is a real eye-opener. Its scholarship is brilliant, and the merits of the 'new' history of science as a cultural process are demonstrated to a stupendous standard. -- Flurin Condrau, University of Manchester

About the Author

Christoph Gradmann is a professor of the history of medicine at the University of Oslo.


An important resource for researchers on Koch and the German medicine of his times. Choice For those interested in visualization; in laboratory practices and their epistemological implications; and in the history of bacteriology, microbiology, medicine and biology in general, this is an important book. -- James E. Strick British Journal for the History of Science This important book... should become an essential tool for any historian of nineteenth-century medicine and any medical doctor interested in the cultural roots of his/her profession. -- Paolo Mazzarello Nuncius This excellent translation is a very welcome addition to the histories of medical science, infectious diseases, and, of course, bacteriology. The narrative is innovative in making extensive use of Koch's laboratory notes, giving detailed attention to the materials and performative aspects of practice and to the construction and representation of knowledge claims. -- Michael Worboys Isis A science historian examines the origins of the field of medical bacteriology and the life of one of its founders.
