Man and the Liver describes the development of man's thinking about the role of the liver, from early times to the present. It considers both culinary and religious uses of the liver and describes the author's contacts with distinguished scientists who have shaped his thinking. The book discusses many aspects of normal liver structure and function and how these are affected when diseased. It is written to provide scientific information - not as a textbook, but many sections could be used by those studying this field. The topics covered, including some mathematics, can be followed by anyone who has studied science at senior school level. It will appeal to readers interested in human biology, and covers science, medicine, history, hepatology and gastroenterology. Man and the Liver is an interesting and unusual hybrid of these subjects and the personalities involved. Author Robert is currently Emeritus Professor of Medicine at the University of London.
