The History of Western Medicine From Antiquity to Antibiotics

Book - 2016 | First edition
Rate this:
From earliest times, man has struggled to control his environment and his fate, and a big part of that has always been his health. From the ancients onwards, the study of medicine, including surgery, has exercised some of the greatest minds - and brought profits to some of the less great. Drawing on sources across Europe and beyond, including the huge contributions to medicine made in Medieval Arabia and India, Chapman takes us on a whirlwind tour of what was known when, and what impact it had.
