Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Capsulized medical information for the lay reader has high appeal. In this reference, Bunch has grouped topical, factual, and historical information into concise chapters that will help the general patron get started when searching broad topics of medical interest. Not presented as a clinical tool, the Handbook compiles sections on current topics in health, major disease groups, and public health issues while offering supportive yet basic clinical and historical material. Each issue is discussed by combining popular press citations with government numbers in essays specially written for this handbook. Informative and easy to read, this distinctive title would be helpful at the public library reference desk as a handy one-volume source of quick information.-Lorri Zipperer, American Medical Assn., Chicago
From The Critics
This basic overview of major developments in health and medicine during the early 1990s is easy to use and accessible to the layperson. It is similar to a collection of magazine articles that can be browsed. Specific topics can also be located via the index. A convenient source for health care professionals, students, teachers, medical writers, and general readers, the handbook covers 11 broad subjects: "Genetics" ; "Conception, Development and Birth" ; "Childhood Health and Diseases" ; "Wellness" ; "Differing Health Problems for Women and Men" ; "Environment and Health" ; "Mind and Body" ; "Viruses, Bacteria, and Other Parasites" ; "Heart Disease, Cancer, Auto-Immunity, and Other Chronic Conditions" ; "Treatment, from Diagnosis to Surgery and Drugs" ; and "Old Age and Death." Each subject section begins with an article on the state of the field. Background material may be given when necessary to an understanding of the current situation. Articles on topics recently in the news include, "The Return of Tuberculosis," "The Gay Gene," "Cell Transplantation: Fetal Tissue and More," and "Is EMF a Cause of Disease?" Each section has a time line of important events in that field. Statistics and charts help with the presentation of information, as do appendixes listing the elements in the human body, human hormones, Nobel Prize winners for physiology or medicine, Albert Lasker Medical Award winners, and obituaries 199093 The overall picture of health and medicine today given in this book will make it a dependable source. Recommended for public, academic, and high-school libraries. Gale plans biennial volumes.
