This is 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 original Chinese 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. Comprehensive coverage includes: the more usual philosophy and history of Chinese traditional medicine; regular descriptions of the meridians and points; extra meridians and extra points; detailed sections on less well known therapies - scalp and ear needling, electro-acupuncture; abstracts from ancient texts, including the Odes; methods and styles of needling; and, discussion of the character patterns of disease.
