Summary:



In 1968, at
the height of the Cultural Revolution, the Chinese Communist


Party endorsed
a radical new system of health-care delivery for the rural


masses. Soon
every village had at least one barefoot doctor to provide


basic medical
care, creating a national network of health-care services for


the very first
time. The barefoot doctors were portrayed nationally and


internationally
as revolutionary heroes, wading undaunted through rice


paddies to
bring effective, low-cost care to poor peasants.




This book is
the first comprehensive study to look beyond the nostalgia


dominating
present scholarship on public health in China and offer a


powerful and
carefully contextualized critique of the prevailing views on


the role of
barefoot doctors, their legacy, and their impact. Drawing on


primary
documents from the Cultural Revolution and personal interviews with


patients and
doctors, I examine the evidence within the broader history of


medicine in
revolutionary and postreform China. I find that rather than


consolidating
traditional Chinese medicine, as purported by government


propaganda,
the barefoot doctor program introduced modern Western medicine


to rural
China, effectively modernizing established methods and forms of


care. As a
result, this volume retrieves from potential oblivion a critical


part of the
history of Western medicine in China.
