Editorial Reviews

Hard on the heels of the splendid Gale Encyclopedia of Medicine (1999) comes this lower priced junior edition. The set has plenty to recommend it. Although it covers only 140 illnesses, disorders, and injuries, compared with 1,500 in the larger set, it includes most familiar conditions as well as a few that are quite rare but have become known because of highly publicized incidents or outbreaks. Entries ranging from three to eight pages are arranged alphabetically throughout the four volumes and are organized under the subheadings of description, causes, symptoms, diagnosis, treatment, prognosis, and prevention. Important medical terms are highlighted and explained for each article. Information is current and quite detailed. Standard treatments are outlined, and in some cases, well-known alternative treatments, such as the use of glucosamine and chondroitin to treat arthritis, are described. Sidebars give biographical, historical, or interesting facts about each condition, and there is a plethora of photographs. Bibliographical references are helpful, as are citations of organizations and Web-sites for further information. Each volume contains the complete index, and unlike the Gale set, this reference contains more than eighty full-color images, startling in their clarity. For schools that cannot afford the larger set but are looking for up-to-date information, this might be an essential purchase. No other multivolume health encyclopedia can compare with it in terms of currency of information, attractiveness of presentation, and price. Glossary. Index. Illus. Photos. Biblio. Further Reading. 2000, UXL, 814p. in 4 vols. PLB $120/set. Ages 12 to 18. Reviewer: Rayna Patton

SOURCE: VOYA, October 2000 (Vol. 23, No. 4)

Geared to the young adult, this four-volume set presents the latest information on 140 wide-ranging illnesses, disorders, and injuries. It covers familiar medical problems encountered in daily life (acne, asthma, chickenpox, cancer, anorexia, learning disorders, etc.) and also some rare illnesses such as smallpox, hantaviruses, and Cruetzfeld Jakob disease. Entries are arranged alphabetically across the set and in general range from three to eight pages in length. Information includes definition, description, cause, symptoms, diagnosis, treatment, prognosis, and prevention. Each volume begins with a glossary collected from all the "Words to Know" boxes located at the beginning of each chapter, as well as a selection of research and activity ideas. Contains many b&w illustrations. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
