ACP publishes 'Medicine in Quotations,' second edition

PHILADELPHIA -- (March 28, 2006) "Quotations can serve as cheaply acquired badges of erudition, but they have better uses for most of us," say Edward J. Huth, MD, and T. Jock Murray, MD, co-editors of "Medicine in Quotations: Views of Health and Disease Through the Ages," second edition, published by the American College of Physicians. According to Drs. Huth and Murray, the most important use of their collection of quotes is seeing what views -- of physicians and patients, of diseases and treatments -- were held in other times and places.

In reviewing 5,000 quotations for the final 3,500 that would become the second edition, Drs. Huth and Murray found that some medical concepts and practices have developed and changed over time, yet some have stayed remarkably constant. "Cultures change through time, but human nature probably changes little," they write in the book's introduction.

The second edition has more than 450 new quotations. Drs. Huth and Murray, in addition to maintaining their own quotation collections and searching for more, accepted many contributions from colleagues in the United States and abroad. The quotations are organized by topic and fully referenced to their original sources. There are also author and subject indices to assist the reader.

Drs. Huth and Murray will sign copies of their book during the American College of Physicians 2006 Annual Session, to be held in Philadelphia April 6-8 at the Pennsylvania Convention Center. Dr. Murray is the event's opening speaker. He will present his address "Professionalism: Use It or Lose It" on Thurs., April 6, at 9:30 a.m. in Hall C of the Pennsylvania Convention Center. Drs. Huth and Murray will sign copies of their book on Fri., April 7, from 3:45 to 4:30 p.m. at Exhibit Hall booth number 927.

Edward J. Huth, MD, MACP, FRCP (London), is Editor Emeritus of the Annals of Internal Medicine, which he edited for 19 years. Long known as the "Dean of American Medical Edito
