Roy Porter

Greatest Benefit to Mankind

€ 34.95

Medicine advances ever faster, and with it not just a capacity to overcome sickness, but to transform the very nature of life. Starting in ancient times, this text charts how this health revolution came about and how life for human beings in the West has ceased to be nasty, brutish and short.

The author:
Roy Porter is Professor of the Social History of Medicine at the Wellcome Institute for the History of Science. He is the editor of the Fontana History of Science series, and the author of over sixty-five books, including, most recently, the acclaimed best-seller, London :A Social History. His book on the history of madness in England, Mind-Forg?d Manacles, won the Leo Gershoy Prize.
