Advances in surgical technique, new ideas about the nature of disease and huge innovations in drug manufacture vanquished most common causes of early death, But, since the mid-1970s the rate of development has slowed, and the future of medicine is uncertain.

The Rise and Fall of Modern Medicine is both riveting drama and a clarion call for change.
