Sus'ruta’s name is synonymous with India’s surgical inheritance. A legendary figure, he is believed to have lived and taught in Varanasi several centuries before the Buddha, and composed the Sus'ruta Tantra which became a timeless medical classic. Though the original text was lost long ago a redaction by Na-ga-rjuna survived as Sus'ruta Samhita and won universal acclaim. The Samhita is a study of the human condition in health and disease with undisguised emphasis on surgery, and rivals Caraka’s classic in authority. In The Legacy of Sus'ruta, the text of Sus'ruta Samhita has been recast in a thematic fashion without sacrificing any of the content of the original chapters. Furthermore, it presents much of the data in tabular form, and features many tables and illustrations in an effort to reach out to readers who may include not only students of a-yurveda but also of modern medicine, biological and social sciences and the history of science. The present volume is a companion to the commercially successful The Legacy of Caraka which was published by Orient Longman in 2003. Special Features: 1. Thematic paraphrase of Sus'ruta Samhita. No other book on Sus'ruta does this. 2. The introduction views Sus'ruta’s world from the point of view of modern medicine. Printed Pages: 908.
