Reviews
This is an excellent overview of the connections between Buddhism and medicine. It will be very useful for scholars and students in Buddhist studies and history of medicine alike, and is likely to become the standard book for teaching this subject. Salguero has dealt well with the challenge of providing a grand overview that is accessible and useful across several disciplines.--Ronit Yoeli-Tlalim, author of ReOrienting Histories of Medicine: Encounters along the Silk Roads
A Global History of Buddhism and Medicine provides an overarching narrative for the burgeoning field of Buddhist medical studies. Salguero successfully synthesizes several millennia of intellectual developments that took place across diverse traditions and cultures into a single coherent narrative.--William McGrath, Manhattan College
