This is a delightful discourse on the history of anesthesia, well documented and prepared with scholarly care. The chronology of anesthesia and anesthetic agents apparently extends back to 3,000 BC, and the care with which the author has documented his statements provides an excellent bibliography for those interested in this subject. The second half of the volume is comprised of ten chapters, each dealing with a specific agent or group of anesthetic agents.
