Chinese Physician by Joanna Grant

Book Description

A Chinese Physician is the portrait of a 16th century medical writer and clinical practitioner. Drawing on socio-economic/biographic, textual, and gender analysis along side a variety of sources, from hagiographical biographies to medical case histories, the book tells three very different but complementary stories about what it was to practise medicine in 16th century China. Woven together, these stories combine to create a multi-dimensional portrayal that brings to life the very human experiences, frustrations and aspirations of a well respected and influential physician who struggled to win respect from fellow practitioners and loyalty from patients. The book creates a vibrant and colourful picture of contemporary medical practice and at the same time deepens our understanding of the interrelationship between gender culture and medicine.

Modernism's Middle East by Joanna Grant Modernism's Middle East, Hardback (October 2008)

Dealing with the efforts of modernists to effect increasingly fraught identifications with an image of the hard, impersonal 'Arab Other' which they saw in contrast to a decadent Western culture, this book shows how this fantasy became more difficult as its popularity grew but also how it still persists.
