The Words of Medicine Sources, Meanings, and Delights by Robert Fortuine( )
8 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 888 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book is a history of the medical vocabulary presented in topical (rather than dictionary) form. While most other books on medical words are arranged as dictionaries, rather than topically, and are much more selective in their presentation, this book entertains a comprehensive and historical approach to the subject. It is written primarily for physicians, biomedical scientists, and medical students, but should also appeal to anyone in the health professions or biological sciences with a 'feel' for medical history and the English language. It will also be useful to some teachers of English
"Must we all die?" Alaska's enduring struggle with tuberculosis by Robert Fortuine( )
4 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 875 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Alaska Natives have struggled with the "white plague" of tuberculosis for centuries. At last, physician and historian Robert Fortuine brings their story to light. He provides a comprehensive account of tuberculosis from its earliest occurrence in prehistory through the latest outbreaks, made more threatening by HIV/AIDS. Fortuine describes the courage and self-sacrifice of itinerant nurses who endured challenging and often dangerous conditions, as well as the efforts of doctors who fought cuts in funding as valiantly as they battled for the lives of their patients."--BOOK JACKET
