Bloody Brilliant! A History of Blood Groups and Blood Groupers

Product Code: 162963

ISBN: 9781563959103

This one-of-a-kind book tells the fascinating story of blood groups and the people who study them.

“The story of blood groups always begins in Vienna with Karl Landsteiner.” So begins this uniquely fascinating tale of how the blood groups were discovered and the interesting people who made those discoveries. Meticulously referenced, this volume is also lavishly illustrated as it recalls the progression of knowledge in blood grouping that continues today. This is the story not only of Landsteiner, Levine, Wiener, Race, Sanger, and other early giants, but also of Mollison, Garratty, Marsh, Tippett, Issitt, Judd, and many, many others who have made their mark on the profession and trained others who even now are doing the same. Ten years in the making, this treasure is enlightening, engaging, and enjoyable to read—well worth the wait.
