“(…) Now, two distinguished physicians have written the story in all its extraordinary detail, and they have collected more than 1,000 illustrations to enhance it. Written for the layman as well as interested professionals — not only doctors and nurses, but dentists, technicians, veterinarians, and public health workers — this extraordinary pictorial survey offers the most complete, full illustrated, and up-to-date treatment of a marvelous subject. And, like good health care itself, the book treatys the whole subject — drawing upon the social, political, and historical background of each advance in medical science. It not only examines the state of medicine in various periods but traces the growth and organization of the healing professions, the increasing involvement of government with the health of the citizens, and the role of women in world medicine.
“A selected bibliography and exhaustive index add to the value of this superb volume.”
