Between Heaven and Earth
The authors explicate the different view of life inherent in Chinese medicine doctors as a gardener to the Western physician as a mechanic. Within this context, Chinese medical concepts such as yin-yan, qi, moisture and blood, organ networks, and the five phases emerge as images that readers can understand experimentally, not simply as cold abstractions.

Fundamentals of Chinese Acupuncture
This text presents a thorough view of classical acupuncture alongside the modern approach. It has several unique features that have contributed to its popularity. First, the author has applied a precise method of translation that allows the clinical experience of both modern and classical Chinese authors to be transmitted directly. Second, the text provides the most consistent information at the lowest cost. Third, it provides a more systematic arrangement of study material.
The authors have selected the best discussions available and arranged the text in four systematic sections: Materials and Methods, Channel, Pathways, Channels and Points, and Approaches to Point selection. The Materials selections have been adapted to western practice. However, the techniques presented are those used by Chinese clinicals and include some not usually taught to Western beginners.

Fundamentals of Chinese Medicine
English translations of traditional Chinese medical texts rarely have conformed to the standards required of a contribution to sinology. One exception has been the first edition of Fundamentals of Chinese Medicine, a ground-breaking translation of the Zhong Yi Ji Chu Xue which demonstrated that not only was it possible to meet scholarly expectations for the translations of TCM but that the cooperation of living Chinese speaking clinicians could reveal nuances of practice. Beyond beginner’s manuals, it gives English-speaking students of TCM a change to appreciate the qualitative details available to their Chinese-speaking colleagues. It offers readers the rare opportunity to understand Chinese medicine, not as it is perceived by a Western writer, but as it is perceived and though in China, because Chinese descriptions of TCM that confound Western expectations have not been expunged from the textual translation.
