The history of medicine is a vast subject, encompassing the whole of humanity in every region of the globe. For millennia, our ancestors have sought to combat disease, relieve pain and postpone the Grim Reaper's inevitable victory, doing so with a fortitude and humour that makes their experiences resonate with us today. The history of medicine has been a march of progress - a gripping story of heroes and villains, of momentous discoveries and gruesome events that we're lucky to have left behind. In this work packed full of facts from medicine's long and often shocking past, Caroline Rance gives concise introductions to some of the well-known (and not so well-known) episodes from medicine's long history, dispelling a few myths and celebrating a few neglected figures along the way.
