|Main author:||Nakajima, Chieko, 1959- (author.)|
"Considers China's modern transformation through the idea of "good health" as it evolved in late nineteenth- and twentieth-century Shanghai. "Good health" did not simply mean individual well-being. It was also a notable outcome of Western medicine, a goal of Chinese nation-building, a marker of modern civilization, and a commercial catchphrase"--Provided by publisher.
