"The collection provides a sampling of various kinds of medical theory and practice found historically in parts of the Middle East, South Asia and South East Asia on the littoral of the Indian Ocean. ... All of the volume's essays are thorough and engaging, and bring much novel research to the anglophone scholarly community." (Shireen Hamza, British Journal for the History of Science, Vol. 49 (4), December, 2016)"Studies of maritime worlds have grown in prevalence in recent decades, and this volume is a welcome addition to those concerned with the Indian Ocean, especially since it uses the region to think about processes involving medicine and healing that are usually confined to nations or empires. ... it works as a geographical catch-all for a wide-ranging subject, and by juxtaposing the work of diverse scholars in several fields of study the editors have created a very a stimulating conversation." (Harold J. Cook, The International Journal of Maritime History, Vol. 28 (4), 2016)
