From pre-Han dynasty medical practice to Chinese medicine as we understand it today, Buck covers all the key ideas and conceptual developments, focussing on those that have the most practical relevance to clinicians. The knowledge that he presents derives from a variety of rare sources, including original Chinese texts that he has translated. With Buck's clear explanations and unique style, the book provides an accessible and authoritative resource that will help practitioners and students deepen their understanding of the practice.
