Description

Kill or Cure, a lavishly illustrated new history from DK, recounts the quest of doctors and scientists through the ages to tame and conquer mankind's ever-enduring enemies: disease, injury, and death. Sometimes misguided, sometimes inspired, always doggedly determined, the great scientific minds of every generation have battled the unknown within our bodies, developing potions, drugs, and therapies in a quest to heal and cure. Beginning with early healers, chance discoveries, technological advancement, and "wonder" drugs, and using panels, timelines, and thematic spreads, Kill or Cure highlights information about human anatomy, surgical instruments, and medical breakthroughs while telling the dramatic tale of medical progress. Diaries, notebooks, and other first-person accounts tell the fascinating stories from the perspective of people who witnessed medical history firsthand. Packed with photographs, diagrams, and visual explanations, Kill or Cure tells the extraordinary tale of medicine through the ages.
