by: Frederick F. Cartwright, Michael Biddiss
A newly revised edition of an established classic in the history of medicine.

Arising from collaboration between a doctor and a historian, Disease and History offers the general reader a wide-ranging and most accessible account of some of the ways in which disease has left its often dramatic mark on the past.
