Book Description:

… a survey history of medicine from the earliest times, centered thematically on how changing concepts of disease have affected its management. . . . Disease and Its Control is a fresh and welcome synthesis of historical scholarship that will be accessible to interested laymen. Annals of Internal Medicine

From the Publisher:

The author's objective is to review the major concepts leading to the present theories of disease and its control in the West. This general survey is organized by concept, by underlying philosophical categories, and examines disease by groupings--environmental, iatrogenic, and cultural.... Hudson, historian at the University of Kansas, knows his subject well and has provided us with a fresh approach to the history of medicine.
