4 Victoria Terrace: Memoirs of a Surgeon

Price : $24.75
ISBN # : 9788187358633
Author : Subir K. Chatterjee
pages: 275
Edition : Hardcover
Volumes : 1
Publisher : Social Science Press
Published : 2012

This covers tumultuous times in recent history, beginning from the later years of British Rule till the present day. Rarely does one come across a doctor's account of what it meant to experience and handle human tragedies of the magnitude of the Bengal Famine or the Partition of India.

Apart from being a doctor's travelogue - there is hardly any major city in the world that Dr. Chatterjee has not visited - this book also unfolds an extremely perceptive description of one of our most important social institutions: medical colleges and hospitals.



Author Bio: Professor Subir K. Chatterjee is a major figure in world pediatric surgery and has pioneered the specialty in the eastern region of the country, especially, in the city of Calcutta (now Kolcata) and continues at 85 years to dedicate his life to treating patients and teaching surgery to his students. Some of his students have become leaders in their fields. Professor Chatterjee has authored numerous learned papers in national and international journals and is also the author of Anorectal Malformations (Oxford and Dehli, 2006)

This book was added to South Asia bookstore on Monday 05 March, 2012.
