For over half a century Davidson has informed and educated students, doctors and other health professionals all over the world. The 20th edition of this concise yet comprehensive text lives up to its reputation for providing a rational and easily understood basis for the practice of medicine. Davidson has always linked the pathogenesis of disease with the practice of clinical medicine, serving the needs both of students and of more experienced readers requiring ta be brought up to date with rapidly advancing medical sciences. The first section on the 'Principles of Medicine' describes the fundamental mechanisms determining health and disease, while the second, the 'Practice of Medicine', covers practice in the medical specialties to MRCP(UK) level. The book's global perspective has been enhanced by the input of its International Advisory Board and new authors from outside the UK. There is now a more detailed account of health problems in the developing world. For the benefit of all readers, both SI and non-SI units are now quoted.

Biographie de Nicholas-A Boon

This famous textbook was the brainchild of one of the great Professors of Medicine of the 20th century. Stanley Davidson was born in Sri Lanka and began his medical undergraduate training at Trinity College, Cambridge; this was interrupted by World War 1 and later resumed in Edinburgh. He was seriously wounded in battle, and the carnage and shocking waste of young life that he encountered at Chat time had a profound effect on his subsequent attitudes and values. In 1930 Stanley Davidson was appointed Professor of Medicine at the University of Aberdeen, one of the first full-time Chairs of Medicine anywhere and the first in Scotland. In 1938 he took up the Chair of Medicine at Edinburgh and was to remain in this post until retirement in 1959. He was a renowned educator and a particularly gifted teacher at the bedside, where he taught that everything had to be questioned and explained. He himself gave most of the systematic lectures in Medicine, which were made available as typewritten notes Chat emphasised the essentials and far surpassed any textbook available at the time. Principles and Practice of Medicine was conceived in the late 1940s with its origins in those lecture notes. The first edition, published in 1952, was a masterpiece of clarity and uniformity of style. It was of modest size and price, but sufficiently comprehensive and up to date to provide students with the main elements of sound medical practice. Although the format and presentation have seen many changes in 19 subsequent editions, Sir Stanley's original vision and objectives remain. More Chan half a century alter its first publication, his book continues to inform and educate students, doctors and health professionals all over the world.
