Innovation in Chinese Medicine

Innovation in Chinese Medicine

In the West ideas about Chinese medicine are commonly associated with traditional therapies and ancient practices which have survived, unchanging, since time immemorial. This volume, edited by Elizabeth Hsu, demonstrates that this is far from the reality. In a series of pioneering case-studies, twelve contributors, from a range of disciplines, explore the history of Chinese medicine and the transformations that have taken place from the fourth century BC to the present day. Topics of discussion cover diagnostic and therapeutic techniques, pharmacotherapy, the creation of new genres of medical writing and schools of doctrine. Given the growing interest in Chinese medicine, the volume promises to make a valuable and innovative contribution. Its interdisciplinarity, a hallmark of the field, will ensure a wide readership amongst scholars and practitioners.
