Medieval Chinese Medicine - The Dunhuang Medical Manuscripts (Electronic book text, Digital original)

,
In recent decades various versions of Chinese medicine have begun to be widely practised in Western countries, and the academic study of the subject is now well established.

This collection represents the kind of international collaboration of research teams, centres and individuals that is required to begin to study the source materials adequately. The first book in English to discuss this fascinating material in the century since the Dunhuang library was discovered, the text provides a unique and fascinating interpretation of Chinese medical history.
