Medicine Along the Silk Roads is the ideal introductory text for students looking to gain a firm understanding of the various Eurasian medical traditions that existed along the Silk Road route. The book also discusses the interesting transmissions and interactions that have occurred between these differing medical traditions throughout history.

Ronit Yoeli-Tlalim provides brief overviews of Chinese traditional medicine, as well as Tibetan, Indian, Syriac, Islamic, Jewish and Greco-Roman medicines, presenting the basic notions of each. All of the chapters also come with sections on suggested reading and recommended websites.

This concise history of world medicine offers a fascinating way in to studying the Silk Road and the interconnected nature of the civilisations that dwelt along it.
