A brief history of medicine, as it existed, developed, and survived in the Old and New World, with considerable emphasis on ancient India's contributions to medical science. Vakil (1911-74), "The Father of Modern Cardiology," was born in Bombay and returned to India in 1938 after earning his medical degree from the University of London and focused on the treatment of heart ailments at a time when cardiology was not a distinct subspecialty in India. In 1949, after years of scrupulous collation and analysis of data, he published a watershed paper on the antihypertensive properties of Rauwolfia serpentina and effected a paradigm shift in the management of hypertension.

Description:
Houndmills, Basingstoke, Hampshire: Palgrave Macmillan, 2002. Hardcover. Fine. In addition to being the leading philosopher of English Romanticism and one of its greatest poets, Coleridge explores the dynamics of consciousness and mental functioning more extensively than any of his contemporaries. This book compares his psychological theories with his diverse exemplifications of Romanticism's self-reflexive quest for transcendence, showing how he continually highlights the circular and mutual influence of ideas and emotions underlying Romantic idealism and the cult of the sublime." Octavo. Original glossy boards; issued without a dust jacket. Small remainder mark to the bottom edge; else a fine, unread copy.
