A textbook of acupuncture and moxibustion from a highly respected
Chinese specialist of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). Qiu is also
well known in Europe following lecture tours on these therapies. The
text discusses acupuncture and moxibustion from adialective materialist
perspective, in keeping with importance the contemporary Communist state
places on TCM for all the people.
The text has been expertly translated
from the Chinese by Richard Bertshinger (author of the 'Golden
Needle'). The originalChinese version of Chinese Acupuncture and
Moxibustion was recently accepted by the All China Medical Board as the
official teaching manual for students in China. Its scope and
authenticity are unique among presently available Western textbooks.
