"Mixed Medicines is just the sort of book that the field of colonial medicine has been clamoring for. It offers much more than a study of the imposition of French colonial medicine on the Khmer people of Cambodia; it show us why people 'mix' health care practices in ways that make sense to them but baffle others. This brilliant book will inform scholars and policymakers alike." (Ken Alder, Northwestern University)"
