Tropical Medicine: An Illustrated History of The Pioneers
This superbly illustrated work provides short accounts of the lives and scientific contributions of all of the major pioneers of Tropical Medicine. Largely biographical, the stories discussed enlighten a new generation of scientists to the advances made by their predecessors. Written by Gordon Cook, contributor to the hugely popular Manson’s Tropical Diseases, this report discusses the pioneers themselves and offers a global accounting of their experiences at the onset of the discipline.
