Histories of Medicine and Healing in the Indian Ocean World, Volume Two : The Modern Period Hardback
Edited by Anna Winterbottom, Facil Tesfaye
Part of the Palgrave Series in Indian Ocean World Studies series
The Indian Ocean has been the site of multiple interconnected medical interactions that may be viewed in the context of the environmental factors connecting the region.
This interdisciplinary work presents essays on various aspects of disease, medicine, and healing in different locations in and around the Indian Ocean from the eighteenth century to the contemporary era.
The essays explore theoretical explanations for disease, concepts of fertility, material culture, healing in relation to diplomacy and colonialism, public health, and the health of slaves and migrant workers.
This book will appeal to academics and graduate students working in the fields of medical and scientific history, as well as in the growing fields of Indian Ocean studies and global history.
