Black's Medical Dictionary is invaluable for home reference and all who need clear explanation of medical terms: nurses, health care professionals and students, health service management, actuaries, lawyers and journalists.
It contains: over 5000 authoritative definitions and descriptions of medical terms and concepts, with over 100 diagrams, drawings and colour illustrations; fully revised and updated specialist contributions on abortion, anaesthetics, assisted conception, breast screening, chronic fatigue syndrome (ME), clinical trials, evidence-based medicine, general practice, Gulf War syndrome, menopause, psychosomatic medicine; and helpful appendices on complementary and alternative medicine, common medical tests, health economics and professional organisations.

Rowman and Littllefield
Black's Medical Dictionary first appeared in 1906. That new century was to see health care in the United Kingdom evolve from a largely personal, paternalistic consultation between doctor and patient, based more on medical tradition than medical science, to a complex, science-based, team-oriented and managed service. The emergence of the informed patient was largely responsible for this change, and publications like this dictionary, the contents of which have during its forty-one editions reflected these changes in medicine, have served as a catalyst.
