 About The Book  

   During the colonial rule the newly introduced health care system developed reasonably well but regrettably its pharmaceutical component remained neglected. It needed a long-drawn out struggle to improve its lot. In this tome, second on builders and awareness creators of modern pharmacy, the lives and contributions of a dozen of the forebears are profiled.


“This book, like the previous ones on the series has been rigorously researched and is meticulously referenced. The next step is to present this material in a broad social, political and cultural and economic context, and to locate it in the wider literature on the history of pharmacy and medicine; Singh has created an important legacy on which future social historians of pharmacy can build”
—S. Anderson
