The Yellow Emperor's Classic of Internal Medicineby Ilza Veith
Synopses & Reviews
The Yellow Emperorand#39;s Classic of Internal Medicine has become a landmark in the history of Chinese civilization. In recent years, traditional medical practice has seen a dynamic revival in China and throughout many countries in the Western world. Elements of this time-honored therapy, including acupuncture and the effort to create harmony of human spirit and the natural world, have become part of mainstream medical practice. The Yellow Emperorand#39;s Classic of Internal Medicine provides the historical and philosophical foundations of traditional practices. Ilza Veith provides an extensive introduction to her monumental translation of this classic work, which is written in the form of a dialogue in which the emperor seeks information from his minister Chand#39;I-Po on all questions of health and the art of healing. A new foreword by Linda L. Barnes places the translation in its historic contexts, underlining its significance to the Western worldand#39;s understanding of Chinese medicine.
