Friedman’s collection demonstrates that the sutures holding together the institutions and discourses that comprise medicine and media are tightly bound. To the title, readers can add an array of other cultural factors also discussed throughout the book that provide the conceptual underpinnings of situated medical practice, including governmental regulations; national and international events, trends, and movements; technological innovations; consumer expectations; and social priorities regarding the individuals, environments, and mechanisms that together create both the possibilities and boundaries for medicine, past, present, and future.
