“The pursuit of legal endeavours by all those involved relating to medicine and health care requires the study of a medical dictionary which not only defines a particular medical word in the science of medicine with accuracy but discusses various aspects emerging out of that word based on medical and, where found necessary, with legal analysis. Gan Choudhury’s Medico-Legal Dictionary and Jurisprudence serves this purpose exceedingly well….The dictionary will be of immense value to the consumers and distributors of medical and health care services, social security investigators, lawyers and judges dealing with medico-legal cases”.
P.N.Bhagwati, Former Chief Justice of India.

“This book of utility and quality is an excellent contribution not in one field but in three.It has an integrated approach of three related subjects of Law, Medicine and Jurisprudence.This dictionary is quite expansive besides being comprehensive, defining words/terms in as many words as required,not less not more,touching various aspects including their import and impact in terms of law.Wherever necessary,they are supported by judicial pronouncements as to how they are read,understood and interpreted’.

The idea of combining two distinct disciplines of knowledge-‘medicine’ and ‘law’ in Gan Choudhury’s Medico Legal Dictionary and Jurisprudence is something entirely new.The dictionary follows predictable criteria with user-friendliness as its primary object.I am confident that the dictionary will be of great use not only to the judges but also to both legal and medical practitioners in dealing with medico-legal cases.

The dictionary would come to immense help in the administration of justice.

The dictionary to me is comprehensive and in-depth.It can particularly be noticed that many words not directly related to medical terms and yet important in medico-legal cases are included with their ramifications explained.In the present day context, when medico-legal cases are on increase, the need
for such a dictionary is all the more felt.
