Publisher: American College of Physicians
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. Who was the first to write about a certain disease, diagnose it, treat it? This book answers those questions for a wide range of diseases, from Abetalipoproteinemia to Zollinger-Ellison syndrome. What were the medical practitioners of previous generations hoping to achieve? What were their patients expecting of them? The answers are found in these quotations. Containing over 3000 entries, Medicine in Quotations is the most comprehensive collection of its type published in over 30 years. Quotations are organized by topic, and each is fully referenced, allowing curious readers 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.
