Vietnamese Traditional Medicine: A Social History

By Michelle C Thompson

Singapore: NUS Press, 2015. First edition. Paperback. New. 31-7-15. Although various aspects of Vietnam's culture have been influenced by the country's close proximity of China, this study demonstrates, at least in the field of traditional medicine, how the indigenous experience influences the extent to which the culture is receptive to foreign influence. Thompson illustrates this resilience by a detailed historical study of the Vietnamese response to a Chinese medical technique for treating smallpox. 179 pages.
