Summary
Blood fills our imagination, just as fully as it fills our veins. In this provocative exploration of the scientific and social history of blood, from ancient times to today, Lawrence Hill considers blood's physical, cultural, psychological and political aspects. He vividly explores William Harvey's bloody dissection table on which the physician used a live dog to prove that blood circulates, shocking his 17th century peers
