|Review: This interesting book is primarily addressing the general public and medical profession by presenting a broad and entertaining introduction to the fascinating story of the development of world medicine from the deity–worship and faith-healing culture of antiquity, spanning the centuries, to the advanced modern medical diagnostic and therapeutic modalities of our age and beyond. It makes absorbing reading.

In this very readable history of medicine from prehistory to modern times, Prof. Cutajar highlights the enormous advances that have been made over the centuries in preventative medicine and the treatment of various diseases. He pays tribute to the medical pioneers who were responsible for discovering life-saving treatments throughout the ages. One can only highly recommend this book for the general reader, but especially for those with a particular interest in the evolution of medicine.
