I have been reading a lot of medical history but everything I have found seems to begin and end in Greece with Galen. So far the only thing I have found about non-western medical practices have been a book and some articles about African herbalists and some passing mentions that, oh, by the way, people in Africa were doing inoculations long before it was adopted in the west. (To be fair in Pox Americana Fenn points to the possibility that Western adoption of the process might stem from Cotton Mather's writing about one of his slaves who practiced inoculations.)
Is anyone aware of a good scholarly work on ancient, non-western medicine?
