Physicians, Plagues and Progress

Full Product Description

From earliest times, man has struggled to control his environment and his fate, and a big part of that has always been his health.

From the ancients onwards, the study of medicine, including surgery, has exercised some of the greatest minds - and brought profits to some of the less great.

Drawing on sources across Europe and beyond, including the huge contributions to medicine made in medieval Arabia and India, Chapman takes us on a whirlwind tour of what was known when, and what impact it had.

Physicians, Plagues and Progress by Allan Chapman was published by Lion Hudson Plc in October 2016. The ISBN for Physicians, Plagues and Progress is 9780745968957.
