Medicine Through the Ages

There are 5 titles in this set.

How has our knowledge of medicine and public health built up since prehistoric and ancient times? How often did new advances benefit ordinary people? This series looks at major changes in medical knowledge and shows that many factors prevented a strong understanding of the human body and disease until modern times, and that inequalities of healthcare still exist around the world.

School Library Journal "Series Made Simple" - 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 "Series Made Simple"
