Routledge has recently published the Routledge Handbook of Chinese Medicine, edited by Vivienne Lo and Michael Stanley-Baker. This is “an extensive, interdisciplinary guide to the nature of traditional medicine and healing in the Chinese cultural region, and its plural epistemologies. The book introduces the broad range of ideas and techniques that comprise pre-modern medicine in China, and the historiographical and ethnographic approaches that have illuminated them.” For the full table of contexts or to order a copy of the book click here.

Patrick notes that he plans more posts over the next year or two on the same subject.
