WINNER OF THE MEDICAL JOURNALISTS' OPEN BOOK AWARD 2005 Revered and feared in equal measure, John Hunter was the most famous surgeon of eighteenth-century London. Rich or poor, aristocrat or human freak, suffering Georgians knew that Hunter's skills might well save their lives but if he failed, their corpses could end up on his dissecting table, their bones and organs destined for display in his remarkable, macabre museum. Maverick medical pioneer, adored teacher, brilliant naturalist, Hunter was a key figure of the Enlightenment who transformed surgery, advanced biological understanding and even anticipated the evolutionary theories of Darwin. He provided inspiration both for Dr Jekyll and Dr Dolittle. But the extremes to which he went to pursue his scientific mission raised question marks then as now. John Hunter's extraordinary world comes to life in this remarkable, award-winning biography written by a wonderful new talent.

Surgeon Arnold van de Laar uses his own experience and expertise to tell this engrossing history of surgery through 28 famous operations—from Louis XIV and Einstein to JFK and Houdini. From the story of the desperate man from seventeenth-century Amsterdam who grimly cut a stone out of his own bladder to Bob Marley's deadly toe, Under the Knife offers a wealth of fascinating and unforgettable insights into medicine and history via the operating room. What happens during an operation? How does the human body respond to being attacked by a knife, a bacterium, a cancer cell or a bullet? And, as medical advances continuously push the boundaries of what medicine can cure, what are the limits of surgery? With stories spanning the dark centuries of bloodletting and amputations without anaesthetic through today's sterile, high-tech operating rooms, Under the Knife is both a rich cultural history, and a modern anatomy class for us all.

Medicine, in the early 1800s, was a brutal business. Surgery was performed without anaesthesia, while conventional treatment relied on leeches, cupping and toxic potions. Two pioneering men of science aimed to change all this - the progressive physician John Elliotson, and Thomas Wakley, founder of The Lancet magazine. But when the flamboyant Baron Jules Denis Dupotet arrived in London to promote the latest craze that was sweeping through Europe - mesmerism - the scene was set for an explosive confrontation . . .

"I am going to kill Signor Guiciardi. Evviva il coltello! Let me explain. Such mocking worship. Long live the knife, they scream it wildly from the crowd when a castrato raises his unnatural voice to the heavens. The knife that defines the man with every cut of flesh." From the doorstep of the maestro's musical conservatorio in Verona, Italy where he was orphaned, to the glittering opera houses of Paris and Venice in triumph, to the burning deserts of Egypt in despair, so runs the course of the life of the castrato Carmine Cirocco. In the eighteenth century world, glorified as one of the castrati singers, males who were castrated in childhood to preserve their angelic singing voices, voices unparalleled by man or woman, Carmine finds himself adored as an idol, yet rejected as a man by the woman he loves. Caught between the screws of humiliation and adulation meted out by the masses, he questions whether he is a man or a monster. When at last he captures the love of a woman, he finds her torn from his grasp by his original nemesis, the man who was his vile castrator. Obsessed with vengeance and rage, Carmine vows to murder the man who destroyed his life and stole his love.
