History needs to be documented as generations of dermatologists to come will want to know how it all started. This book of the IADVL does just that, specially to a generation that sees the fruits of progress as an act of serendipity and much less of labour. This well written concise book is the brainchild of the IADVL history book team that went about putting historical events in their right perspective, interviewing people associated with the occasion or thereabout and rechecking the facts to avoid any discrepancies. The chapter on "The emergence of dermatology in India" sets out to trace the metamorphosis of the speciality from then to now. Skin diseases were treated from early times in India by the indigenous system of medicine Ayurveda, with the advent of the British rule the dermatologist was exposed to allopathic medicine where there was universal uniformity in nomenclature, understanding and therapy of skin diseases. This was accompanied by the establishment of large hospitals and the introduction of postgraduate teaching programmes. The book is a collection of pieces written by a number of people on various topics of historical interest, old personalities long gone but not forgotten to the establishment of the IADVL, its constitution, the journal, national conferences, awards and orations and the in house textbook of dermatology. A good part also includes the history of the various state branches of IADVL and their past and present activities. It contains a number of interesting photographs enough for one to reminisce the past. All in the entire book is a well written and crafted manuscript that gives history the correct perspective.
