"[The authors] enhance their study by employing the biocultural approach. [They] stress the importance of using both the physical evidence, which is obvious, and the cultural proof, which is often less clear, in a multidisciplinary approach to diseases in people who lived in the past. . . . This book is recommended as a good reference source, which will provide both historical background and cultural data on disease. It will be most valuable to the person who seeks information about diseases past, their virulence, and their effect upon a population."--Journal of the American Medical Association
"Anyone generally interested in the history of medicine in antiquity will want to keep this useful reference book at hand."--Bryn Mawr Classical Review
"This is an excellent, thought-provoking account, packed with fascinating information. . . . A thoroughly useful book. . . . The authors are to be congratulated on successfully surveying such a broad field of study."--Journal of the History of Medicine
