Inhaltsangabe: In 1746, Dr John Buchanan, recently retired as a medical officer in the British Army, produced a manuscript entitled, "Regimental Practice, or a Short History of Diseases common to His Majesties own Royal Regiment of Horse Guards" when abroad (Commonly called the "Blews"). Revised in several stages almost until the time of Buchanan's death in 1767, this work was for the most part based on the author's observations while surgeon to a cavalry regiment serving in Flanders 1742-45, during the War of the Austrian Succession. It is a work of immense value to the understanding of eighteenth-century interpretation and treatment of diseases, but as yet has never been published. Presented here is an annotated modern edition of the text, with an introductory section setting the work in the context of Buchanan's life and career, and within the broader framework of eighteenth-century medical practice. Buchanan's practice of medicine generally represented the mainstream of professional practice as regarded both his understanding of disease and his treatment of it. Across the decades of the eighteenth century there were discoveries and fashions that impacted both the theory and the practice of medicine. Various writers of that age, as well as a number of historians since, have conveyed the sense that practice was chaotic. On the contrary, what this book argues is that methods used to treat diseases were fairly standard. Therefore, by reading Buchanan's manuscript one sees not only how he treated more than three dozen diseases, as well as various wounds and injuries, but also how these conditions were often treated in this period.
Rezension: Mills' book is rich in information and thought provoking engagement with the diverse and complex issues surrounding the patentability of biotechnological inventions. It explains and enlightens in equal measure and is a must-read for anyone interested in the subject.'Margaret Llewelyn, University of Sheffield, UK'Biotechnological Inventions: Moral Restraints and Patent Law provides a roadmap for future research in the area of modern patent law. In this insightful, thought-provoking and thorough book, Mills provides a useful and timely introduction to the way that moral issues impinge on patents in Europe and the United States. It is an important and welcomed contribution to contemporary patent scholarship.'Brad Sherman, University of Queensland, AustraliaReviews of 1st Edition:'...written in a clear manner...[with] a considerable degree of understanding of patent basics...this book is a level-headed and sober addition to the literature on this subject and will be of particular use to students.'
