Modern Medicine

There have been extraordinary changes in medicine since the start of the 20th Century. Diseases that were killers in 1900, such as polio, have been almost wiped out. Hundreds of new drugs have been developed. This book shows how today’s extraordinary surgical techniques, such as heart transplants, would have been unthinkable for a doctor a hundred years ago. And, unlike 1900, people in many countries today can see a doctor or other healthcare worker when they need to, often for free.

School Library Journal - Alyson Low

"These noteworthy volumes cover medicine’s progression from ancient times to the present day. They highlight theories, equipment, medications, procedures, diseases of particular concern, milestones, and more. They do not explore medicine in a vacuum, though, addressing the inextricable link between it and society at large. Unlike some series that fall into the limiting trap of cookie-cutter layouts and organization, these volumes only generally resemble one another and have abundant, fascinating material particular to their respective eras. The writing is straightforward and refrains from sensationalism, letting the torturous reality of early medicine speak for itself. The text is supplemented by interesting sidebars and informative photographs, maps, diagrams, and reproductions. -- Alyson Low, Fayetteville Public Library, AR School Library Journal, "Series Made Simple" 11/1/2012" - School Library Journal
