The first experiments in blood transfusion took place in Paris and London during the 17th century - an age when the practice was resisted because of fears that it might jeopardize souls, create monstrous hybrid creatures or provoke divine retribution. Tucker's 'compelling and unusual' history of these early controversies brings alive the world of early modern science and raises questions still relevant today - should a society set limits on its science, and at what price? Felt-tip mark on lower trimmed edge.
