Overview

Liping (Chinese, University of Melbourne) uses the Southern Chinese province of Guangxi to examine the geographic, cultural, economic, and political factors underlying the trade of herbal medicines in China. He analyzes the diversified spatial structures of the marketing system for traditional medicines and the changing pattern of state involvement and control during the late Qing and Republican periods, the early decades of the People's Republic, and the post-Mao era. The study also shows the difference between the flow of medicines and the marketing systems for other commodities in the region, and considers the extent to which the marketing system of traditional medicines conforms to models outlined by Skinner.
