CURRENT BOOKS INTERNATIONAL is a unique concern published books related to Medical and Life Science, Dental, Nursing, Pharmacy, Homoeopathic, Ayurvedic, Unani, Veterinary, Paramedical and Allied Health Sciences. The company started in 1950s as its parent company “S. BHATTACHARYA & COMPANY” with its many branches all over India with Head Office in Kolkata. That enterprise was the main wholesalers and publishers representative in India for medical books.
The company started publishing medical books meant for Undergraduates and Post Graduates during late 1980s. It has more than 100 titles including A. K. Datta’s series of Human Anatomy books and Mahapatra’s Medical Physiology (Text & Practical separately) which are widely accepted by MBBS and BDS as well as Pharmacy, Para-Medical, Nursing, General Life Science Students and also the Post-Graduates, Doctors and other Medical Professionals too.

Hardly we can find a doctor who don’t know about P.C. Das’s T.B. of Medicine or a Veterinary Surgeon who never read R.K. Ghosh’s Veterinary Books. A.K. Gupta’s Forensic Medicine & Toxicology is a renowned name to the Medical Students. The company presently has a wide network with its distributor as well as sister concern MEDICAL BOOK COMPANY PVT. LTD. which has retail outlet in Kolkata and Nagpur.
It’s said that Goethe died with these words on his lips, ‘Light more light’. What he actually meant. Whether the sun or knowledge – is uncertain, but man’s thirst for the light of knowledge ever remains insatiable.
Inspired by such a conviction, we have been publishing different books on diverse subjects since and feel proud to remind our readers that at least some of these have influenced thousands of lives in one way or another. As the world of thought is boundless, so it the realm of publication. It opens up new horizons each year and we do our best to play a role, however humble, in that diffusion of knowledge.
