This book is designed to present the history of medicine in an accessible and readable manner. It is intended for 6th form students, BSc students and for postgraduate students studying for the Diploma in the History of Medicine of the Society of Apothecaries. It could also be used with profit by their teachers in schools, colleges and universities. In fact, the book might be said to be required reading for anyone who wishes to come to an understanding of medicine's past. The narrative is an imaginative account of the progress of medical knowledge told in the form of the autobiography of a physician born some 2700 years bc. The dialogue and descriptions of events are based on original sources. The Commentaries give the events their place both in the medical world and the world at large, and the timelines and maps ensure that the scenes are securely set in both time and space. 

The progress of medicine has, indeed, been complex and far more than a list of names, dates and achievements. History of Medicine makes clear that medical history is continuous and not just a series of isolated events.
