    The challenges to find remedies to alleviate, treat and cure illness have engaged the minds of doctors, healers and patients since ancient times. In this vigorously researched book, medical historian Mary Dobson gives an account of key milestones in medical history, from the 'humours' of Hippocrates to Crick and Watson's discovery of the structure of DNA. Richly illustrated throughout with paintings, engravings and scientific photographs, this volume is a tribute to the pursuit of medicine.
