This book has long been needed as a concise review of American medical history for college level, graduate, and medical students. Written by a surgeon with doctoral training in the history of medicine, this work gives an overview of the topic to beginning graduate students in the field, before beginning specialization. It will also serve the medical student with a special interest in the history of medicine, or as a textbook in those medical schools that have a history sequence in their medical humanities offerings.
Luis H. Toledo-Pereyra is Professor of Surgery and Director of Research at Michigan State University, Kalamazoo Center for Medical Studies.
