Industrial Age Medicine

By the middle of the 18th century, the profession of medicine and its place in the sciences was entering a period of rapid change. Many of the old ideas about the human body and how to cure or prevent diseases were being questioned. But was this just by chance? This book shows how a wide range of inventions, developments, and other factors created ideal circumstances for medicine to make huge advances in the Industrial Age.

School Library Journal - Alyson Low

"These noteworthy volumes cover medicine’s progression from ancient times to the present day. They highlight theories, equipment, medications, procedures, diseases of particular concern, milestones, and more. They do not explore medicine in a vacuum, though, addressing the inextricable link between it and society at large. Unlike some series that fall into the limiting trap of cookie-cutter layouts and organization, these volumes only generally resemble one another and have abundant, fascinating material particular to their respective eras. The writing is straightforward and refrains from sensationalism, letting the torturous reality of early medicine speak for itself. The text is supplemented by interesting sidebars and informative photographs, maps, diagrams, and reproductions. -- Alyson Low, Fayetteville Public Library, AR School Library Journal, "Series Made Simple" 11/1/2012" - School Library Journal
