Abstract

Reviews  Reading the ancient medical classics without a guide or teacher is daunting if not completely frustrating. For this reason alone, Classical Chinese Medicine is an invaluable piece of scholarship. Yet, it goes far beyond a mere explication of the Treatise on Cold Damage. Liu Lihong also shows, through the very form of patient treatise, and through many concrete examples of people he and his mentors have healed with reference to ancient knowledge, exactly why a person wishing to learn about or practice Chinese medicine must be devoted to study of the classics. This book’s insights are too rich and plentiful to convey in a single review. Its arrival in the English-speaking world thanks to the work of a team of translators is a cause for celebration. Nicole Elizabeth Barnes Nicole Elizabeth Barnes is an assistant professor of Chinese history at Duke University, specializing in gender studies and the histories of medicine and public health.
