Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book Saving Lives in Wartime China: How Medical Reformers Built Modern Healthcare Systems Amid War and Epidemics, 1928-1945 contains the table of contents, a list of photographs, graphs, maps and tables, a foreword, a preface, acknowledgments, and a list of abbreviations. The book highlights the work of a small but dedicated group of medical reformers who took on the challenge to deal with China's high rates of sickness and death. These reformers were individuals who obtained professional education in colleges that taught clinical and laboratory-based medicine, hereafter referred to as biomedicine, that is, study based on careful examination of patients, laboratory data collection and microscopic analysis, along with the principles of modern nursing, midwifery and public health.
