„Volume 8 of „Tradtional South Asian Medicine“ covers a broad spektrum of topics related to medicine science in both ancient and modern South Asia. Although the contents may not be focused on a specific theme, time period, or source language, and despite its irregular appearance, the extra-ordinary quality of the contributions in the journal males it an important periodical in the field of Indian medicine.“
