    Abstract

    The volume goes to the meeting biopolitical institutions. To the history of the health offices, 1870 to 1950, which took place in 2005 in Berlin. The aim of the conference was to bring together the scattered research on the history of health authorities and to discuss new research questions. The contributions gathered here deal mainly with three topics: They examine the most important institutions of the health policy at the level of the central state from the Kaiserreich to the national socialism, and take a look at the Imperial Health Office and the Dresden Hygienic Museum. Another subject of investigation is the history of juvenile psychiatric institutions in the Kaiserreich and the Weimar Republic, which were closely connected with the psychiatry of the institution, but also with the municipal health services. A third section includes case studies on individual municipal health authorities and municipal health policy from the Kaiser until the immediate post-war period, with the Nazi state being the focus of interest. The Foucault concept of biopolitics provides an outlook and addresses the function and the areas of activity of the health authorities.
