Written by a leading authority with an excellent reputation and ability for writing a good narrative, "Drug Discovery: A History" is a far cry from simply a list of chemical structures. This lively new text considers the origins, development and history of medicines that generate high media interest and have a huge social and economic impact on society. Set within a wide historical, social and cultural context, it provides expanded coverage of pre-twentieth century drugs, the huge advances made in the twentieth century and the latest developments in drug research. It provides up-to-the-minute information in drug research. It includes vignettes of special and unusual information, and anecdotes. It discusses drug prototypes from all sources. It is more comprehensive than other volumes on history of drug discovery.
