The book has been divided into two parts: (1) the first section deals with medicine and art of healing in ancient India, especially in Ayurveda, (2) the second section section how disease, body, mind/psychology-psychiatry, gender question, public health etc. was dealth with during colonial encounter, and, finally, (3) how the entire notion of social body, methodology of treatment, prognosis and healing was epistemologically reconstituted into individuated body (also, person of the patient was transformed into pathology inside the body) following colonial confrontation. All the articles are research papaers produced after a long period of study.
