Industrial Age Medicine
"By the middle of the 18th century, the profession of medicine and its place in the sciences was entering a period of rapid change. Many of the old ideas about the human body and how to cure or prevent diseases were being questioned. But was this just by chance? This book shows how a wide range of inventions, developments, and other factors created ideal circumstances for medicine to make huge advances in the Industrial Age."
