Guy N A Attewell. After the wave of innovation that in the s and s brought empire and colonialism into the history of medicine—and, with that, a wider and consistent use of domination, resistance, dependency, power-knowledge, hegemony, and other concepts—some of us thought that this approach was here to stay for some time. And yet there are already signs of change, with works that challenge what was so neatly finished in the previous models and dig into the complexities, nuances, dissonances and contradictions of the actual processes of healing and curing in history and across cultures. Such is the aim of Refiguring unani tibb: plural healing in late colonial India, in which Guy Attewell brings us close to the complexities involved in what we know as the unani medical system, commonly associated with the Islamic-Arabic medical tradition.
