"This volume begun in Walter B. Cannon: The Life and Times traces the middle and late years of one of America's most distinguished crusaders of medical science from his service in World War I until his death at the end of World War II in 1945." "The biography covers Cannon's laboratory and battlefield work on traumatic (wound) shock in England and France in 1917-18. It follows him in his career as head of physiology at Harvard Medical School, where he investigated the function of the sympathetic division of the autonomic nervous system and oversaw the training of scores of budding medical scientists and clinical investigators. And it provides the details of his increasing involvement (although a self-styled "laboratory hermit") in a myriad of social and political activities that grew to global proportions."--BOOK JACKET
