Una storia della medicina e dell'oncologia dalle origini ai giorni nostri non è stata mai realizzata in precedenza. Questo lavoro non si limita a raccontare i fatti ma il significato dei fatti, ponendo la medicina e l'oncologia nell'ampio contesto della storia generale e delle discipline umanistiche, per dare preziose indicazioni sul ruolo non secondario svolto dalle scienze mediche nel progresso dell'umanità. Storie della medicina, sebbene datate, sono rinvenibili nella letteratura medica, mentre sono assenti libri di storia globale dell'oncologia e in particolare quelli ideati per dare una panoramica esaustiva dell'integrazione tra le due discipline. Questo primo volume traccia la storia della medicina e dell'oncologia dalle origini della vita allo sviluppo di società in Mesopotamia, Egitto, Cina Imperiale e Americhe precolombiane. L'opera non è solamente un autorevole testo di consultazione per coloro che si dedicano allo studio della medicina e dell'oncologia, ma offre ai lettori interessati l'opportunità di seguire la formazione delle idee moderne sullo stato di salute e sul trattamento delle malattie, compreso il cancro. [Abstract translated by Google Translate: This is the abstract in English… A history of medicine and oncology from its origins to the present day has never been made before. This work is not limited to recounting the facts but the meaning of the facts, placing medicine and oncology in the broad context of general history and the humanities, to give valuable information on the non-secondary role played by medical sciences in the progress of humanity. Histories of medicine, although dated, can be found in the medical literature, while books on the global history of oncology are absent and in particular those designed to give an exhaustive overview of the integration between the two disciplines. This first volume traces the history of medicine and oncology from the origins of life to the development of societies in Mesopotamia, Egypt, Imperial China and pre-Columbian Americas. The work is not only an authoritative reference text for those who dedicate themselves to the study of medicine and oncology, but it offers interested readers the opportunity to follow the formation of modern ideas on the state of health and on the treatment of diseases, including cancer.]
