Halliburton, Murphy. Review of Depression in Kerala: Ayurveda and Mental Health Care in 21st-Century India, by Claudia Lang. Asian Medicine 15, no. 1 (November 2020): 200–202.
Excerpt: Claudia Lang engages in a thorough and incisive scholarly analysis of the practice of Ayurvedic psychiatry in Kerala, India, in the face of the growing hegemony of biomedicine and a purported epidemic of depression in India. She has provided what is arguably the most in-depth scholarly analysis of Ayurveda and mental health written by anyone who is not a practitioner of Ayurveda.
