Summary
"The essays in this volume by leading writers in their fields provide new historical scholarship into areas of science and pseudo-science that generated fierce controversy in Mary Shelley's time: anatomy, electricity, medicine, teratology, Mesmerism, quackery and proto-evolutionary biology." "The collection embraces a multifaceted view of the exciting cultural climate in Britain and Europe from 1780 to 1830. The collection will be an invaluable resource for students and scholars specialising in Romanticism, cultural history, philosophy and the history of science."--Jacket
