abstract
"Requiring no specialized medical or Jewish knowledge, Jews in Medicine will appeal to readers interested in the fascinating history of Jewish contributions to the field. The book focuses on the relationship of Jews and medicine in Islamic and Christian lands, offering a short description of Jewish history followed by accounts of individual physicians and their major contributions. It ends with a description of physicians who were leaders in the Zionist movement and those who contributed to the development of medicine in the State of Israel"--
