University of Chicago Press, Chicago and London: 2011. h Hardcover with dustjacket. Brand new book. 
Since ancient times people have depended on medical practitioners to enhance life, to treat illness and injuries, and to help reduce pain and suffering. The scientifically based discipline that we know today stands beside diverse traditions, belief systems, and bodies of medical knowledge that have evolved in fascinating ways across cultures and continents. Throughout this history, successive generations have created artistic representations of these varied aspects of medicine, illustrating instruction manuals, documenting treatments, and creating works of art that enable individuals to express their feelings and ideas about medicine, health, and illness. From ancient wall paintings and tomb carvings to sculpture, installations, and digitally created artworks, the results are extraordinary and pay tribute to how medicine has affected our lives and the lives of our ancestors. Drawing on the remarkable holdings of the Wellcome Collection in London, The Art of Medicine offers a unique gallery of rarely seen paintings, artifacts, drawings, prints, and extracts from manuscripts and manuals to provide a fascinating visual insight into our knowledge of the human body and mind, and how both have been treated with medicine. Julie Anderson, Emm Barnes, and Emma Shackleton take readers on a fascinating visual journey through the history of medical practice, exploring contemporary biomedical images, popular art, and caricature alongside venerable Chinese scrolls, prehistoric Mesoamerican drawings, paintings of the European Renaissance, medieval Persian manuscripts, and more. The result is a rare and remarkable visual account of what it was and is to be human in sickness and health.

One third of people after stroke, having survived the first few weeks, return home with significant residual disability, and can therefore benefit from an active, multidisciplinary rehabilitation program. This is a comprehensive guide to rehabilitation after stroke, in which leading international authorities set out the basic neuroscientific principles that underlie brain recovery, including chapters on neural plasticity and neural imaging, and describe appropriate rehabilitation strategies for the many different functional problems that can arise after stroke. These include movement disorders, sensory loss, dysphagia and dysarthria, problems with continence and sexual difficulties, and cognitive disorders. Also covered are measurement of disability and quality of life, assistive technology and vocational rehabilitation. It is therefore an essential handbook and reference for all members of the multidisciplinary stroke rehabilitation team, including medical personnel, therapists, clinical neuropsychologists and rehabilitation nurses. The essays included in this book are: 1. Strokes: background / epidemiology / aetiology / avoiding recurrence Gabriel R. de Freitas, Daniel C. Bezerra, Alexandre B. Maulaz and Julien Bogousslavsky; 2. Principles of recovery after stroke Bruce H. Dobkin and Thomas S. Carmichael; 3. Regenerative ability in the central nervous system Barbro B. Johansson; 4. Cerebral reorganisation after sensorimotor stroke Rudiger J. Seitz; 5. Imaging brain in recovery after stroke Cornelius Weiller and M. Rijntjes; 6. Measurement in stroke - disability and quality of life Angus Graham; 7. Evidence based stroke rehabilitation Sharon Wood-Dauphinee and Gert Kwakkel; 8. Is early rehabilitation useful? Karin Diserens and Gerhard Rothacher; 9. Community rehabilitation after stroke Michael P. Barnes; 10. Physical therapy and assessment Gillian D. Baer and Frederike M. J. Van Wijk; 11. Movement disorders after stroke J. Ghika; 12. Post-stroke spasticity and pain Philippe Vaudens, Michael P. Barnes, R. Peyron and B. Laurent; 13. Sensory loss and proprioceptive rehabilitation D. A. Perennou and Adolfo M. Bronstein; 14. Dysphagia Jeri A. Logemann; 15. Continence after stroke Barbara J. Chandler; 16. Sexual problems after stroke Barbara J. Chandler; 17.

Krebs, Brandon R. Rohrer, Susan E. Fasoli, Joel Stein and Bruce T. Volpe; 24. Vocational rehabilitation Ashish Macaden; 25. A patient's perspective Donal O'Kelly. "This book will appeal to those specifically interested in stroke rehabilitation, particularly from an academic point of view, but will probably find its way on to more stroke rehabilitation unit library shelves rather than one's own personal bookshelf at home."
