Medicine in Quotations: Views of Health and Disease Through the Ages is much more than a random collection of famous sayings relating to sickness and health, disease and treatment. It is a portrait of medicine throughout recorded history. Readers will discover how medical concepts and practices have developed and shifted through the millennia and how many illnesses recognized today were first identified a thousand or more years ago.
Containing over 3000 entries, Medicine in Quotations is the most comprehensive collection of its type in over 30 years. Quotations are organized by topic, and each is fully referenced, allowing curious readers to return to the original source. Subject and author indices make it easy to find quotations of interest.
Medicine in Quotations is an invaluable resource for writers, speakers, and all those interested in the history of medicine.
