Biswamoy Pati's fascinating book examines dimensions of the social history of tribals and dalit outcastes in Orissa. It studies the impact of colonial agrarian settlements, adivasi strategies of resistance; indigenous systems of health, the colonial 'medical gaze'; fluidities of caste formations, appropriation by princely rulers of adivasi deities and healing methods; rituals of legitimacy adopted by these rulers; the development of colonial capitalism, as well as the role of marginalized groups in the national movement.

This hard-hitting volume shows a mirror to the society and, more specifically, to those associated with the health sector—-on how healers, in many cases, are shifting shape to becoming predators. In the essays by contributors from within and outside the medical fraternity, we see the many faces, the many facets of corruption—-from exorbitant billing by corporate hospitals to the non-merit-based selection in medical colleges to the questionable motives playing strong in the area of organ transplantation. It also offers solutions, and some stories of hope. The Foreword by Amartya Sen is an added bonus.

This volume interrogates the foundational categories that have come to define medical science in modern South Asia. It seeks to probe issues such as what constitutes the 'medical', in which context, and who defines it. This is achieved through case studies that range from the nineteenth to twenty-first centuries, from colonial Bengal and British Burma to present-day Andaman Islands and Ladakh.

This volume interrogates the foundational categories that have come to define medical science in modern South Asia. Through case studies ranging from nineteenth- to twenty first-centuries, it addresses the following questions: How and in what conditions does an event, a substance, an actor, an institution or a particular situation of the body-mind become or cease to be considered 'medical' and according to whom? How did contingent political histories engender the medical? How does the medical, in turn, reshape and sustain political categories? Is the medical necessarily a stable, coherent and continuous category? In what ways are the rigid boundaries between the medical and the nonmedical blurred? In so doing, Locating the Medical examines close interactions between political authorities, corporeal knowledge and objects of governance.
