A Cultural and Medical History

Michael Obladen

Oxford Textbooks in Paediatrics

  • A global approach covering many societies and epochs of human history has never been taken before.
  • Key cultural and philosophical aspects of the historic development of neonatal care have been integrated and numerous ethical implications of neonatal medicine throughout history have been addressed.
  • The book is richly illustrated with fascinating contemporary illustrations and paintings, many in colour, and most difficult to obtain and never published in a book before.
