Overview

Eighteen essays, by eminent physicians, historians, and educators, discuss the philosophy and ethics of health care, ministering to the sick, and professionalism. The essays were developed from annual lectures delivered to members of the American Osler Society, a group devoted to the promotion of medical history and medical humanism; the editor teaches medicine at Loma Linda U. in California. The volume has no subject index. Annotation © 2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
