This completely reworked edition of the two-volume The Oxford Companion to Medicine (Oxford Univ. Pr., 1986) is much shorter and is written for anyone with an interest in medicine, not just those working in medical fields. A cross between a dictionary and a single-volume encyclopedia, the book has an all-in-one quality that makes it appealing both as an excellent reference source and as a medical book that is fun to pick up and browse through. Of particular interest are articles about the field of medicine itself, including "Art and Medicine," "Communication Between Doctors and Patients," "Psychiatry," and articles about medicine in various geographical areas. The authors of the entries are primarily from the United Kingdom and are experts in their fields. The Encyclopedia & Dictionary of Medicine, Nursing, & Allied Health (Saunders, 1992) is similar but focuses is on serving students and practitioners, whereas The Oxford Medical Companion has a broader appeal. A welcome addition to any library.
