Overview

The origin and early years of any rapidly changing scientific discipline runs the risk of being forgotten unless a record of its past is preserved. In this, the first book-length history of clinical chemistry, those involved or interested in the field will read about who and what went before them and how the profession came to its present state of clinical importance. The narrative reconstructs the origins of clinical chemistry in the seventeenth century and traces its often obscure path of development in the shadow of organic chemistry, physiology and biochemistry until it assumes its own identity at the beginning of the twentieth century. The chronological development of the story reveals the varied roots from which modern clinical chemistry arose.

Editorial Reviews

C.W. Beck
Rosenfeld...offers the first comprehensive history of clinical chemistry, and it is an impressive piece of work....The evolution of analytical methods is soundly grounded in the broader theoretical and practical aspects of the history of chemistry....This book...is very well written and a pleasure to read, and it is the best available single source of information on the subject.
