Book Overview

Western science and pharmacology first learned about many African diseases, remedies, and medicinal practices through Jos Pinto de Azeredo's highly original and influential text. A unique Enlightenment-era medical text written specifically about health issues in Angola, this is the first work by a Portuguese physician to describe accurately, through first-hand observation, medical practices and substances used in Angola during the peak period of the transatlantic slave trade. This first English-language edition of Essays on Some Maladies of Angola was translated by Stewart Lloyd-Jones (University of Stirling) and includes scholarly essays by Timothy Walker (University of Massachusetts Dartmouth), Adelino Cardoso (Universidade Nova de Lisboa), Ant nio Braz de Oliveira (Biblioteca Nacional de Portugal) and Manuel Silv rio Marques (Universidade de Lisboa).
