Early History of the British Journal of Anaesthesia
In my earlier paper I related a “tale of two cities”, which illustrated not only the friendly relationship but also the rivalry that has existed historically between Manchester and Liverpool. This symbiotic relationship has also played a part in the history of the British Journal of Anaesthesia, which was started in Manchester, grew up and then nearly died in London, only to be resuscitated in Liverpool. I am grateful to Dr. Edmund Riding, my successor as Editor of the British Journal of Anaesthesia, for collecting a great deal of information on its early history.
