Medicine: Perspectives in History and Art is not just another immense, colorful coffee-table book. Instead, it is a winner: a slightly quirky, eclectic collection—of paintings, drawings, advertisements, photographs, quotes, anecdotes, history, observations, and comment—that portrays the trials and triumphs of the profession of medicine. “Perspective” can be defined as “the relationship of aspects of a subject to each other and to a whole,”1 and this volume provides just such perspective.
