A Short History of Medicine

£9.99

Immerse yourself in the history of medicine – a colourful story of skill, serendipity, trial and error, moments of genius, and dogged determination. From traditional chinese medicine to today’s sophisticated gene therapies and robotic surgery, ‘A Short History of Medicine’ combines riveting storytelling and beautiful images, historical accounts and lucid explanations, to illuminate the story of medicine through time. Witness early, bloody, anaesthetic-free operations; see the first crude surgical instruments; trace the mapping of the circulatory system; follow the painstaking detective work that led to the decoding of the human genome; and understand the role that potions, cures, therapies, herbal medicines, and drugs have played in the human quest to tame and conquer disease, injury, and death.
