Includes bibliographical references.

"The impact of disease on history has probably been underestimated by conventional historians.Disease In History offers a broad range of essays and commentaries on medicine as practised within the ancient world, on the early development of modern medicine in the eighteenth century, and on medicine in early Australian history.In the final section the essays are devoted to medicine and modern history and include commentaries on the contemporary menace of biological warfare, the long-standing genocidal suppression of indigenous peoples, and the time-honoured couplet of war and epidemic disease." -- Back cover.
