Review Text

  • By Speed Readers on December 28, 2011

    The book reaches deeper than merely describing the vehicular aspects of ambulances over time but aims to explain their origin, purpose, and development in the larger context of the advances in medical care and societal growth. The author brings a rather unique set of professional experiences and insights to the task of writing an account that connects new dots. And, the book is more than just an academic exercise: the author hopes that by enabling the reader to understand the challenges of the past we will become more "generous in helping our emergency first responders meet the challenges of today."The focus is on civilian developments and concentrates on US and some UK activities. Bell also weaves strands into his account that have not previously been examined in this way such as the role of police ambulances in the context of first responders, the role of the ambulance intern, the reasons for the US taking the lead in the push for emergency ambulance service, and the role of women.Find more detail at book review website [...]

    I needed a reference on the brief merger of the functions of the ambulance and the hearse in American history. Dr. Bell's comprehensive work covered the topic amply. He is an excellent historian who covers not only the history of the equipment and the vehicles but also the public policy that went into improving ambulance service in this country. I highly recommend this excellent work of medical history.

    Great book for an old EMT like me. At $44 I thought it was a little pricey since it the cover and pages feel like less quality paper and binding materials. But it arrived faster than I anticipated and I am glad I bought it.
