Steve Parker, author of The Human Body Book, traces the evolution of medicine and the people who made it happen from prehistory to modern imaging techniques and stem cell treatment. Anecdotal rather than encyclopedic, the book follows medical progress through a selection of topics – such as surgery in ancient Egypt, Harvey and the circulation of the blood, or the fight against cancer – and aims to give non-technical insights into the history and practice of medicine.
