The Two-headed Boy, and Other Medical Marvels by Jan Bondeson

In this collection of essays, Bondeson, a physician working at a research institute in London, explores the lives of human beings who, having been born with often appalling congenital deformities, became in their time and place freaks. He provides both a medical and a human perspective on their experiences, offering a corrective to the myths that may hover around dwarfism, dicephaly, and giantism, by providing narrative histories of actual cases.
