about this item

ReOrienting Histories of Medicine takes a cross-cultural approach that provides a re-appraisal of the 'globalised' character of early medicine. It re-orients medical history, and emphasizes the role of the transmission of medical ideas and practices between European and Asian cultures. Using original research taken from the medical findings of Dunhuang, Turpan and Cairo Genizah, this book contextualises the history of Euro-Asian medical encounters, from Greco-Indic early contacts to the present adoptions of mindfulness in psychotherapy.

This is an important book for those interested in the history of medicine and the transmissions of knowledge that have taken place over the course of global history.
