This book contributes to the burgeoning field of historical studies of globalization, in part by showing the connections between the history of medicine in the colonial context and the evolution of medicine in Europe, and also highlights the vital role of colonial peripheries in shaping the colonial experience. It also presents a detailed social history of Cambodia that contributes to Southeast Asian history. The gap between Western and indigenous medicine grew during the colonial era. The stories within this book demonstrate that the evolution of medicine in both the European and indigenous contexts is regulated by intimate local engagements as well as global changes in medicine, and specific social developments in Cambodia and metropolitan France. This introduction provides an overview of the chapters included in the book.

Keywords:   globalization, medicine, Europe, Cambodia, Southeast Asian history, France, social developments
