Format: Hardcover
Knowledgeably compiled and deftly edited Manfred Waserman and Samuel S. Kottek, Health And Disease In The Holy Land: Studies In The History And Sociology Of Medicine From Ancient Times To The Present is a seminal and scholarly work of impressive dimension. Following an informed and informative introduction, Health And Disease In The Holy Land is comprised of seventeen scholarly contributions that ranger from Paleopathology in the Middle East (Baruch Arensburg & Marcus S. Goldstein); Health and Healing in Medieval Muslim Palestine (Felix Klein-Franke); and Pilgrims, Crusades and Plagues (Stephen R. Ell); to Hospitals and European Colonial Policies in the 19th and Early 20th Centuries (Norbert Schwake); Kupat Holim and Jewish Health Services during the Mandate (Shifra Shvarts); and Judea-Samaria and Gaza: Twenty-Five Years of Changing Health 1967-1992 (Theodore H. Tulchinsky), Health And Disease In The Holy Land represents ground breaking scientific inquiries and descriptive/analytical regional public health and specialized medicine histories. Enhanced with an extended bibliography for further studies and readings, as well as a comprehensive index, Health And Disease In The Holy Land is a unique and strongly commended addition to academic library reference collections and medical history reading lists.
