About the Author:

Henry E. Sigerist, Professor and Director of the Institute of the History of Medicine, Johns Hopkins University.


"Will interest a circle much wider than the medical profession...A substantial contribution to our knowledge of the human mind and the ways in which that mind functions in the creation of social order."--New Republic

"An ambitious and praiseworthy undertaking that should go far towards a synthesis of the history of medicine with history in general."--The Yale Review

"Should be read by every person concerned with medicine and public health, for it will enrich his understanding of his own activity."--American Journal of Public Health

"Sets high standard of lucidity, informativeness, and readability. So thoroughly has Dr. Sigerist mastered his material, that he has no need of technical jargon, and his writing will appeal to the layman as well as the medical specialist. Apt analogies, vivid illustrations, and an
interesting style make for quotable passages on nearly every page."--American Sociological Review

"No such history has ever before been attempted; the result is praiseworthy and goes far in reaching its aim. Using resources from the fields of history, philosophy, art history, medical archeology, and geography, Sigerist paints a vivid picture of ancient society and medicine. General
readers, as well as historians and scientists, should find these works stimulating and understandable."--The Winnipeg Real Estate News
