Journal of the American Medical Association

Those interested in medical history will find this monograph a pleasant and informative source of information. The illustrations and the maps are crisp and clean, and the tables enhance the work....Overall, I found Born to Die a fascinating work that will appeal to anyone interested in the social, economic, and medical history of the New World immediately after its discovery and conquest.
