Description - Needles, Herbs, Gods, and Ghosts by Linda L. Barnes

In "Needles, Herbs, Gods, and Ghosts", Linda Barnes leads us back to the 13th Century to uncover the story of the West's earliest known encounters with Chinese understandings of illness and healing. As Westerners struggled to understand new peoples unfamiliar to them, how did they make sense of equally unfamiliar concepts and practices of healing? She has unearthed numerous examples of Western missionaries, merchants, diplomats, and physicians in China, Europe, and America encountering and interpreting both Chinese people and their healing practices.
