History of Medicine provides a brief survey of the history of Western medicine with reference to recent scholarly literature and current issues in health care. Organised conceptually around the major fields of medical endeavour, this book provides an accessible overview of medical history as a vibrant component of social, intellectual and cultural history, and as a research discipline in its own right. Duffin's clear and entertaining prose and the many illustrations will help to demystify medicine for general readers and for students in other disciplines, such as history, philosophy and sociology.

JACALYN DUFFIN is Jason A. Hannah Professor of the History of Medicine at Queen's University in Canada.Review:
'History of Medicine is a tour de force, a very personal, enthusiastic, frank approach by a teacher, clinician, and historian who has excelled at all three, and brings that excellence and excitement to the students through these pages.' - T.J. Murray, Dalhousie University, Canada
'Duffin's book, as a single-authored work, is far more coherent than Cambridge Illustrated History of Medicine. As compared to Greatest Benefit to Mankind, Duffin's book is a much more attractive work in view of the illustrations spread through the book and the text boxes - and I am sure that medical and other students will find it more accessible.' - David Smith, University of Aberdeen
