The Healing Hand: Man and Wound in the Ancient World

by

Dr. Guido Majno has returned to the original sources--Greece, Rome, Egypt, India, and China--to unravel the history of the ancient art of healing. Using documents as varied as personal letters, buried artifacts, and early treatises, he has reconstructed ancient experiments in a modern laboratory and compared ancient remedies with today's methods. "Stimulating, well-written, and handsomely illustrated".--Theodore Rosebury, Natural History. Illustrated in full color and halftones.
