Summary Groote Schuur Hospital is a landmark in Cape Town, a medical institution with an international reputation, created mainly by the first heart transplant which took place there in 1967. This book takes a new look at the history of the hospital, examining the experiences of staff and patients, clinical practice and research, and the social and political environment in which the hospital has operated. Authoritative in its analysis and lively in its writing, this work establishes the rich contribution and significance of this important South African institution.
