Description du produit

Revue de presse

Review of the hardback: 'Far more than a laboratory manual for the practising palaeopathologist, it effectively combines the subject with perspectives from archaeology, demography and historical epidemiology. It exemplifies the potential of such integration for understanding the health dynamics and ecology of past communities and it will undoubtedly be the subject's standard reference for many years to come.' Alan Bilsborough, The Times Higher Education Supplement

Review of the hardback: 'All human life, death and disease is here, meticulously described and remorselessly illustrated in forensic detail. This is an indispensable guide to the downside of being human.' New Scientist

Présentation de l'éditeur

This book was first published in 1998. The Cambridge Encyclopedia of Human Paleopathology is a major reference work for all those interested in identification of disease in human remains. Many diseases leave characteristic lesions and deformities on human bones, teeth and soft tissues that can be identified many years after death. This comprehensive volume includes most conditions producing effects recognizable with the unaided eye. Detailed lesion descriptions and over 300 photographs facilitate disease recognition and each condition is placed in context with discussion of its history, antiquity, etiology, epidemiology, geography, and natural history. Diseases affecting the soft tissues are also included as these are commonly present in mummified remains. This book will be an indispensable resource for paleopathologists, anthropologists, physicians, archaeologists, demographers, and medical historians alike.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Palaepathology 5 avril 2014
Par Prof.Dr.Gerhard Krueger - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
This is an excellent information for pathologists not being aware too much about what's known of ancient pathology. I had to review some old bones from excavations and this book (as well as others) were of great help.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Ancient Neoplastic Disease 17 juillet 2010
Par Ron Braithwaite - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
I've found this tome useful in my own research and future publication as to Cancer Causation. The author gives a number of cases of almost certain and highly probable ancient cancers. He also states, quite correctly, that because 90% of present day cancers occur in people over 55...and...because most ancient people died before 55, we can reasonably expect that few ancient remains will show evidence of cancer.

Besides that, the vast majority of ancient remains consist of bone, more often than not incomplete skeletons and, bony lesions secondary to cancer are present in the minority of cases, even today, the incidence of detectable ancient cancers is reduced even further.

These, and other problems associated with examination of ancient remains means that detectable ancient cancers will be uncommon enough to render statistical analysis and comparisons with present day cancers virtually impossible. About all we can say is that ancient cancers did exist and are occasionally detectable especially as osteolytic and osteoblastic metastases. Like many other pathology experts, I think the author makes a mistake to emphasize the role of 'carcinogens'. Unfortunately this term has become almost synonymous with 'mutagens' which is surely a mistake. He mentions ancient and present day astestos which is a carcinogen but not a mutagen. He suggests that certain cancers might be expected to be less common in ancient people because of the absence of modern day, industrial 'carcinogens'. Maybe a little bit but my thought is that such modern day 'pollutants' increase cancer incidence only slightly.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Very useful 3 juillet 2010
Par Evan the Dweezil - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
This is a very helpful book for people in forensic science, bioarchaeology, or even medicine. It's got concise descriptions and excellent photos of the various pathological processes that act against the human skeleton.

If this book peaks your interest, it's also worth your time to take a look at Identification of Pathological Conditions in Human Skeletal Remains, Second Edition by Donald Ortner

If you want to know anything about paleopathology, this is the book you want to use. It is easy to understand and great as a reference book. The authors cover every aspect of pathology from bone to soft tissue...definitely a must-have if you need the best pathology reference book out there.

That's all that really needs to be said about it. This book is mind-blowing. It's huge and comprehensive for those who need a reference not only for diagnosis, but histology and pathology.
