MORE ABOUT THIS BOOK

Main description:

Zachary B. Friedenberg records the fascinating history of surgical practices through the ages: from the operation of windowing the skull during the Stone Age, to details of Egyptian surgery recovered on papyri. Indian surgery from "Sushruta Samhita" is revealed and the surgery of medieval and renaissance Europe is explored. In addition to the wealth of detailed information on various treatments contained within this book, it also comes to light that these advances in surgery were impeded by the church as heretical and also by slavish adherence to ancient texts that have been revered for centuries, but which were known to defy factual evidence. "Surgery Over the Centuries" is both a truly captivating book and a compelling read to historians and those curious about surgical practices in different periods of time and cultures.
