Product description


"a book of this kind is long awaited...highly laudable. All the 18 contributors of the book have done a commendable job by recording the history of pediatric surgery with authenticity. This book deserves to find a place in every library and is a 'must read' for every surgeon especially those who are interested in children's surgery"--Indian Journal of Pediatric Surgery; "it succeeds well by introducing any one without a large experience in the specific history of pediatric surgery...delightful"--Doody; "explains that pediatric surgery was not a specialty on its own until the middle of the 20th century, but as far back as ancient Egypt, India, and Cina and down the ages some individual healers specialized in children"--Reference & Research Book News.
