Cambodians and Their Doctors
Cambodians and Their Doctors: A Medical Anthropology of Colonial and Post-Colonial Cambodia

At face value, this book is about medicine in Cambodia over the last hundred years. At the same time, however, it is an historical and contemporary anthropology of Cambodia, in that 'medicine' (in the sense of ideas, practices and institutions relating to health and illness) is used as a prism through which to view the colonial and post-colonial society at large. Rich in ethnographic detail derived from both contemporary anthropological fieldwork and colonial archival material, the study is an account of the simultaneous presence in Cambodia of two medical traditions: the modern, biomedical one first introduced by the French colonial power at the turn of the twentieth century, and the indigenous Khmer health cosmology.
