JCM Review

According to the Preface "As traditional Chinese medicine has become more popular throughout the world, the need has grown among TCM practitioners and students in the West for a comprehensive clinical manual to help them to quickly find solutions to various pathological problems of the body. Such a manual should combine TCM treatments with Western medical diagnoses so that diseases can be easily recognised and properly treated. This book is intended to meet that need".

Professor Zhou has 40 years of clinical experience working in a large Nanjing hospital and has taught at the Nanjing University of TCM for many years. Jin Hui De is well known to many Westerners as an interpreter and translator from Nanjing, now qualified as a doctor in his own right and practising in London. Together they have produced a valuable clinical textbook covering 18 major symptoms and 185 diseases, many presented for the first time in an English language textbook. Inevitably for such a wide range, the detail is brief and succinct, giving key points of Chinese and Western diagnosis, and differentiated treatment using herbal medicine, acupuncture and patent remedies.
