The Cultural Fabric of Chinese Medicine is suitable for a broad range of readers who will not only learn a great deal about Chinese medicine but will gain insight into Chinese culture and history from various perpectives. '...A tightly knitted fabric that outlines the main features of Chinese medicine' - Professor Chen Ke-Ji, Academia Sinica, Beijing. 'Professor Kong succeeds in presenting a lucid and well-balanced account of the cultural foundations which are regarded as indispensable for a deeper insight into Chinese medical traditions. At the same time, he constantly throws new light on the use of modern science for the interpretation of early observations made by Chinese doctors. 'This is not only a stimulating book on present-day Chinese medicine, but also represents a major contribution towards a better understanding of China in the modern world' - Professor Erhard Rosner, Gottingen University.
