Book Description
this book examines the modernization of the indigenous healing practice of Ayurveda in India. Combining contemporary ethnography with a study of key historical moments as glimpsed through early twentieth century texts, Jean M.Langford argues that Ayurveda evolved from an eclectic set of healing practices into a sign of Indian national culture. it was reigned as a healing force not simply for bodily disorders but for colonial and postcolonial ills. Interweaving theory with narrative. Langford explores the strategies of contemporary practitioners whop reconfigure Ayurvedic knowledge through institutions and technologies such as hospitals, anatomy labs, clinical trials, and sonograms,.
