Product Description:

Publisher Description:

Were there advances in medicine in Medieval Europe and elsewhere in the world? How great was the impact of the break-up of the Roman Empire, and the growth of the Church, on medical practice and public health? This book examines beliefs and practices, public health and plague, to demonstrate that while learning was limited, there were important developments in the Islamic world and Europe itself.

Category Description for Medicine Through the Ages:

Today's medical advances are often taken for granted. Consider medicine during America's great Civil War. Surgeons would probe wounds and amputate patient after patient without sterilizing instruments or even washing their hands! The concept of antiseptic surgical technique was unknown. In fact, the first antibiotic to be utilized to treat infection was Penicillin, which was first used during World War II. This series is a fascinating look back at what we take for granted when it comes to our health and medical care. Content is high interest, low readability with a 5th-6th grade reading level. (Lexile scores available at the publisher, Capstone's website). Books are well illustrated and include bold vocabulary words and glossary, a period timeline, additional book and web resources, and research topics. SC. 48 pgs. ~ Deanne

My son loves history and really wants to learn about the human body. When I told him about this series, he was so excited to read them. I'm getting them one at a time, and he can't wait. :)
