About the Book

Histories of Mercury in Medicine Across Asia and Beyond presents a collection of research on the historical uses of mercury in Asian and European medicine by an international group of scholars. Drawing upon primary textual sources as well as on colonial and trade company records, the authors explores the ways in which mercury was used in the different medical traditions from the medieval periods to the present. The essays in this volume provide insight into the many connections between the various Asian medical cultures, and the role European colonial enterprises played in adding to these connections.
