Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This one-volume encyclopedia contains 1400 alphabetical entries that provide concise information about various aspects of health and medicine--information that is always in demand. These include diseases, organs, systems, drugs, medical and surgical procedures, and biographies of scientists and physicians who made important discoveries. The book also has a chronology of medical history from 5000 B.C.E. through 1999. The articles are easy to understand, and ample cross references will help readers find related information. The biographies include many women scientists as well as researchers from all over the world. Most have pictures, though these illustrations are sometimes awkwardly placed on the page after the article. Although the information here is readily available in other sources, such as The Gale Encyclopedia of Medicine (LJ 2/15/99) and the Encyclopedia of World Biography (Gale, 1998. 2d ed.), this will be a useful source for school, consumer, health, and smaller public libraries that do not own the larger, more expensive sources.--Barbara M. Bibel, Oakland P.L., CA Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.\
This encyclopedic coverage of some 1,400 entries from to an American bacteriologist/immunologist, is written for students and other non-specialists. Alphabetically- arranged entries survey many of the key topics and personalities in the medical sciences and allied health fields, principles, technologies, recent advances (e.g. gene therapy), and recent problems (e.g. Gulf War Syndrome). Terms in boldface direct readers to cross-references. Includes b&w photos of medical conditions, procedures, equipment, and innovators; and a historical chronology from c. 5000 B.C. to 1999.
