Were there advances in medicine in Medieval Europe and elsewhere in the world? How great was the impact of the break-up of the Roman Empire, and the growth of the Church, on medical practice and public health? This book examines beliefs and practices, public health, and the plague, to demonstrate that while learning was limited, there were important developments in the Islamic world and Europe itself.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 8 Up-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. α(c) Copyright 2011.
