‘Crammed full of fascinating titbits of information on a hugely broad range of topics while containing trustworthy and comprehensive reviews’, The Lancet

The Oxford Companion to Medicine is a fascinating and authoritative guide to the field of medicine and its specialities. More than 200 authors have contributed over 500 substantial articles and many more shorter ones, on topics ranging from abortion to zombification. All the major medical and nursing specialities are covered, and detailed attention is given to complementary therapies, national medical systems, and the historical development of medicine. This new edition has been completely rewritten and includes a greater emphasis on the history of medicine, its cultural links with the arts and music, and its international nature.

Book.  523 pages.  664514 words.  Illustrated.
