Jews have long been recognized by friend and foe as medical superstars. They have filled the ranks of physicians out of all proportion to their numbers. One might almost say that medicine has been the Jewish profession. This book tells the history of Jews in medicine as a flowing epic, from the (pre-) biblical era to the Nobel Prize winners of the twentieth century, from the Middle East through the countries of Europe, to the Orient and to America--always against the backdrop of the cultural, religious, political, and scientific developments of the times, It is a fascinating and valuable tale of scientific achievement.
