Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 9 Up—"Conventional" western allopathic medicine is closely scrutinized in this adequate series, with alternative or "traditional medicines" mentioned in passing. The books outline history, examples, major players, and current status and controversies. Medicine and Healers is a chronological compilation of people who have made significant contributions from ancient times into the 21st century and includes a chapter on nurses. Infectious Diseases covers the epidemiologies of diseases, including the H1N1 influenza pandemic. Battling and Managing Disease focuses on the societal impact of disease, public health, and national and international health agencies. Insets highlight significant people and background information including the "Health Care Reform Legislation." Occasional diagrams, charts, micrographs, and photographs, all in black and white on matte paper, lack impact. A limited glossary and inadequate index are included in each volume.
