The links on this page explore the relationship between medicine and politics, between medical management of the human body and governmental management of the body politic. The education provided through these resources argues that the increasing complexity both of society and of governmental administration of society in the modern age has made it impossible completely to separate medicine from politics. It demonstrates that, along with great potential for social benefit, "medico-politics" has brought with it great danger; much harm has been done in the name of "protecting the public".
