Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“A clear and instructive introduction by the guest editors Judith Farquhar and Marta Hanson prompts excitement over the fascinating choice of this special issue. . . . This collection of essays truly deserves to become standard reading, not only for students of the historiography of medicine and empire building but also for historians of East Asia in general.” - Sabine Frühstück, Royal Asiatic Society
