Cover for DUFFY: From Humors to Medical Science: A History of American Medicine

From Humors to Medical Science

A History of American Medicine

John Duffy's classic history, formerly titled The Healers, has been thoroughly revised and updated for this second edition, which includes new chapters on women and minorities in medicine and on the challenges currently facing the health care field.

"This remains the only comprehensive history of American medicine. The treatment of the emergence of modern medicine and the flowering of surgery is especially fresh and well done. As one of the respected scholars in our profession, John Duffy has again demonstrated his wide knowledge of the subject."
-- Thomas N. Brunner, author of To the Ends of the Earth: Women's Search for Education in Medicine
