Professor of History of Medicine at University of Oxford

The volume analyses the diverse facets of the social history of health and medicine in colonial India. It explores a unique set of themes that capture the diversities of India, such as public health, medical institutions, mental illness, and the politics and economics of colonialism. Based on interdisciplinary research incorporating sources ranging from palm leaf manuscript to archival materials, the essays herein offer valuable insight into topics that have recently received increased scholarly attention, including the use of opiates and the role of advertising in driving medical markets.
