Riassunto: From primitive times, when magic was often the only available medicine, to modern days, when the doctor's ability to cure illness just seems miraculous: how, through the centuries, did we travel from one point to the other? This remarkable voyage through the milestones and landmarks of medical knowledge takes us back to prehistory, when sorcerers actually perforated the skull to relieve ailments (yes--many patients actually survived!) right through the most up-to-date, sophisticated technology used by skilled practitioners now. There are portraits of outstanding doctors, surgeons, and scientists whose efforts produced revolutionary breakthroughs; accounts of major developments such as anesthesia, x rays, and the discovery of penicillin; and discussions of the varied philosophical approaches to maintaining health. More than 200 color and black-and-white illustrations, paintings, engravings, and photographs, plus the latest in computer graphs and scans, bring each stage of medical practice vividly to life. 192 pages (all in color), 8 3/4 x 11 3/4.
