He charts the remarkable rise of modern medical science - the emergence of specialties such as anatomy, physiology, neurology, and bacteriology - as well as the accompanying development of wider medical practice at the bedside, in the hospital, and in the ambitious public health systems of the twentieth century. Along the way the book offers up a treasure trove of historical surprises: how the ancient Egyptians treated incipient baldness with a mixture of hippopotamus, lion, crocodile, goose, snake, and ibex fat; how a mystery epidemic devastated ancient Athens and brought an end to the domination of that great city: how lemons did as much as Nelson to defeat Napoleon: how yellow fever, carried by African mosquitoes to the Americas, led the French to fail utterly in their attempts to recover Haiti after the slave revolt of 1790: and how the explorers of the South Seas brought both syphilis to Tahiti and tuberculosis and measles to the Maoris."--BOOK JACKET+-+1534688485253418ocn048132341book20020.27Porter, RoyMadness : a brief historyHistoryA history of "madness" offers readers a sweeping history of mental illness and its treatment, from holes drilled in five-thousand-year-old skulls to the latest in modern psychotropic drugs+-+9217537465234410ocn030319034book19940.25Porter, RoyThe biographical dictionary of scientistsBiography DictionariesA one-volume comprehensive introduction to over 1,200men and women in all areas of science, providing biographical information and the significance of each scientist's contribution+-+0835670465324227444ocn033046171book19960.29The Cambridge illustrated history of medicineHistoryThe Cambridge Illustrated History of Medicine examines, through popular and professional perception, the history and interrelation of disease, health and medicine over more than two thousands years.

An extraordinary city, London grew from a backwater in the Classical age into an important medieval city, a significant Renaissance urban center, and a modern collossus. Roy Porter writes a whole life of this world-renowned place - from the grid streets and fortresses of Julius Caesar and William the Conqueror to the medieval, walled "most noble city" of churches, friars, and crown and town relationships. Within the crenellated battlements, manufactures and markets developed and street-life buzzed, enlivened with the cries of hawkers and peddlers. People worked, talked, haggled, and relaxed in London's medieval streets, while craftsmen lived where they worked, nestled trade-by-trade in neighborhoods. London's profile in 1500 was much as it was at the peak of Roman power. The city owed its courtly splendor and national pride of the Tudor Age to the phenomenal expansion of its capital. It was the envy of foreigners, the spur of civic patriotism, and a hub of culture, architecture, and great literature and new religion. Tudor Londoners had an insatiable appetite for new workshops, yards and stores, and comfortable homes; and makeshift quarters for laborers from rural areas began to dot the rising city. London experienced a cruel civil war, fires, enlightenment in thought, government, and living, and the struggle and benefits of empire from the eighteenth through the twentieth centuries. From the lament that "London was but is no more" to "you, who are to stand a wonder to all Years and ages... a phoenix," London became an elegant, eye-catching, metropolitan hub. It was a mosaic that represented the shared values of a people - both high and low born - at work and play. London was and is a wonder city, a marvel. Not since ancient times has there been such a city - not eternal, but vibrant, living, full of a free people ever evolving. As no one before him, Roy Porter captures the deep pulse of his hometown and makes it our own. London's fortunes, people, and imperial glory are recaptured with brio and wit.

Porter examines the influence of such heroic figures as Bacon, Newton, and Locke in shaping the British Enlightenment, as well as the impact of other English essayists and novelists in popularizing modern thought.

Hearing voices, seeing things and unintelligible fragmentations of thought are generally accepted descriptions, but Miller suggests that they can be reducible neither to biological fact nor to social relativism, but lie in the concept of personhood. Treatments of purgation, vomiting and bleeding are based in the idea of imbalance of the four humours of astrological cosmology, but continued long after the beliefs disappeared. The history from medieval possessions requiring exorcism to the concept of physical disease of the nervous systems follows the transition from religious to secular authority.

He was a brilliant teacher, a sage who could talk on anything, but his passion was 18th century rationalism. He dressed unconventionally, open shirts, chest hair, gold chains - and he rode a bike. His first wife said he looked like a frog!

The attempt to allow patients to regain their equilibrium gave way to physical illness models and a more repressive patient management regime. The theory of eugenics led to the Nazi atrocities at Hadamar in Germany. Shock therapies and psychotropic medication, combined with concerns for patient rights and the "least restrictive environment" notion have led to the decline of these institutions.
