The Cambridge History of Medicine5th June 2007
Against the backdrop of unprecedented concern for the future of health care, The Cambridge History of Medicine surveys the rise of medicine in the West from classical times to the present.
Covering both the social and scientific history of medicine, this volume traces the chronology of key developments and events, while at the same time engaging with the issues, discoveries, and controversies that have beset and characterised medical progress. The authors weave a narrative that connects disease, doctors, primary care, surgery, the rise of hospitals, drug treatment and pharmacology, mental illness and psychiatry. This volume emphasises the crucial developments of the past 150 years, but also examines classical, medieval, and Islamic and East Asian medicine.
Authoritative and accessible, The Cambridge History of Medicine is for readers wanting a lively and informative introduction to medical history.
