Abstract

This report contains three lectures given during acceptance ceremonies by awardees of the International Association for the Study of Traditional Asian Medicine’s prestigious Basham Award. While they concern episodes in the modern history of Japanese medicine, the contemporary medicine of the Yao national minority in China, and ancient Chinese self-cultivation practices, all three engage in deeper reflections on the craft and methods of the historian that will speak to all readers of Asian Medicine.
