What role should historians of science, technology, and medicine have in communicating their own body of literature—its methods and concerns—across linguistic boundaries? This anthology is a proactive response to this question. As the West and the East become ever more closely related through travel, trade, and—not least—the globalization of knowledge, the seven essays in this volume should stimulate new engagements between English and Chinese readers on the centrality of science, technology, and medicine for our histories and our future. A wider selection of influential literature published in English since 1990 has been translated into Chinese and published in China in a companion volume.
