Conduct unbecoming a woman: Medicine on trial in turn-of-the-century Brooklyn.New York & Oxford: Oxford University Press, 1999.
"In the spring of 1889, Brooklyn's premier newspaper, the Daily Eagle, printed a series of articles that detailed a history of midnight hearses and botched operations performed by a scalpel-eager female surgeon named Dr. Mary Dixon-Jones. The ensuing avalanche of public outrage gave rise to two trials--one for manslaughter and one for libel--that became a late nineteenth-century sensation" (publisher).
