The History of Medicine presents the history of medicine in six full-color volumes, examining how and when various medical discoveries were made and how that information affected health care at the time. Ideal for high school and college students interested in the early stages of medicine, the volumes in this interdisciplinary set blend discussions of history, biology, chemistry, and medicine, as well as economic issues and public policy associated with each topic.
Beginning with primitive man and concluding with vital information on the role of medicine in the future, these comprehensive books explore everything from understanding one's personal risk of certain diseases to the ethics of organ transplants and the increasingly complex questions about preservation of life. Written in clear language, these books feature sidebars, a glossary, a chronology, and print and Web resources for further information.
