This Collection, composed of altogether 23 reissued titles in four sub-sets from The Athlone Press and Leicester University Press, offers a distinguished selection of titles that showcase the width and breadth of historical study, as well as the interdisciplinary nature of the subject. Crossing over into politics, linguistics, economics, politics, military and maritime history, and science, this Collection encompasses titles on British, European and global subjects from the Early Modern period to the late 20th Century.
Drawing on some of the foundations of modern medicine and prevention - disease communication, hereditary illnesses and the threat of tropical disease and its increase in times of globalisation - this set with three titles offers a wealth of information for those researching the history of science and medicine.
All titles can be bought individually or as part of a sub-set. This sub-set includes:
- From the Greenwich Hulks to Old St. Pancras: A History of Tropical Disease in London by G.C. Cook
- The Mendelian Revolution by Peter J. Bowler
- Insects, Hygiene and History by James Ronald Busvine
