 Venerating the Root Part One (Cover Image)

Sūn Sīmiǎo's Bèi Jí Qiān Jīn Yào Fāng (Essential Prescriptions Worth a Thousand in Gold for Every Emergency) Volume 5: Pediatrics, Part 1.
"Venerating the Root" fills a great gap in Chines medical (and perhaps even biomedical) education: it presents a comprehensive overview of neonatal and pediatric classical physiology, neonatal care including cord care, grooming and breastfeeding, and diseases that are common in children.

This book is a literal translation of the first half of Volume 5 from the Bei Ji Qian Jin Yao Fang 備急千金要方 on pediatrics, composed by Sun Simiao 孫思邈 in the seventh century. The second half is published as "Venerating the Root, Part Two." The book includes the following features:
40 pages of introductory matter and 323 pages of main text.
A critical edition of the Chinese text with the literal English translation on opposing pages.
Four main sections on "Preface," "Emergence of the Newborn from the Abdomen," "Fright Seizures," and "Intrusive Upset."
Extensive translator's notes that explain individual terms, medical concepts, alternative readings of passages, translation issues, etc.
Clinical commentary by Dr. Brenda Hood.
Interspersed throughout the translation and commenting on each major formula in the text, a full translation of the section on pediatrics from the Qian Jin Fang Yan Yi 千金方衍義, a commentary on the Qian Jin Fang composed in 1698 by the famous physician Zhang Lu 張璐.
Forewords by Peter Firebrace and Genevieve LeGoff, including a poem by Peter Firebrace that summarizes the content.
A Preface by Sabine Wilms, excerpted on the page on "Nurturing the Small" under the "Teachings" tab on the Happy Goat Productions website.
A general index and indexes for single herbs and formulas, indications, acupuncture and moxibustion, and proper names.
