Imperialism and Medicine in BengalImperialism and Medicine in Bengal

This book assesses the impact of imperial policies on the medical profession in Bengal during colonial rule and covers the period 1800-1947. Dr. Poonam Bala first discusses the Indigenous medical systems which prevailed in ancient and medieval India. She examines the relationship between the ruling powers and the practitioners of the Ayurveda and Unani systems which were, on the whole, positive and led to the growth of both these medical systems under royal patronage. With the advent of British rule in Bengal this relationship began to change. The major part of the author's analysis is concerned with the Bengali experience of colonial administration and Western medicine as the last major challenge to the indigenous medical systems. The period under study was one in which Western medical science was changing rapidly and becoming increasingly professional: The attempt to impose a similar pattern on the Indian systems of medicine led eventually to a conflict of interest between the two, instead of the peaceful co-existence which had prevailed at first. By the end of the nineteenth century, advances in Western medicine had undermined and eroded the similarities in approach and practice which had earlier made extensive cooperation at least a possibility. Dr. Bala discusses this attempt of the Western system to assert hegemony over its indigenous counterparts in Bengal, especially by trying to root itself in the emergent English-speaking elite--the Bhadralok. However, in the final analysis, this effort did not succeed completely because of the great social and religious differences between the two cultures. Thus, although, state policies were formulated to serve British commercial and administrative interests, these could never quite overwhelm the interests of the indigenous population or the medical practitioners who served them. Ultimately, according to the author, medical practices in the period under study have to be understood in terms of both competition and accommodation in the context of a general trend towards the professionalisation and commercialisation of medicine. A book which will command attention not only in departments of medicine but also among anthropologists, historians, political scientists and sociologists.

This book highlights the medical importance of and increasing global interest in herbal medicines, herbal health products, herbal pharmaceuticals, nutraceuticals, food supplements, herbal cosmetics, etc. It also addresses various issues that are hampering the advancement of Indian herbal medicine around the globe; these include quality concerns and quality control, pharmacovigilance, scientific investigation and validation, IPR and biopiracy, and the challenge that various indigenous systems of medicine are at risk of being lost. The book also explores the role of traditional medicine in providing new functional leads and modern approaches that can offer elegant strategies for facilitating the drug discovery process. The book also provides in-depth information on various traditional medicinal systems in India and discusses their medical importance. India has a very long history of safely using many herbal drugs. Folk medicine is also a key source of medical knowledge and plays a vital role in maintaining health in rural and remote areas. Despite its importance, this form of medicine largely remains under-investigated. Out of all the traditional medicinal systems used worldwide, Indian traditional medicine holds a unique position, as it has continued to deliver healthcare throughout the Asian subcontinent since ancient times. In addition, traditional medicine has been used to derive advanced techniques and investigate many modern drugs. Given the scope of its coverage, the book offers a valuable resource for scientists and researchers exploring traditional and herbal medicine, as well as graduate students in courses on traditional medicine, herbal medicine and pharmacy.
