This book was first published in Taiwan as a text intended to teach Chinese medical English to Chinese students. This new edition is in response to a demand from English-speaking students who have found the book to be a useful introduction to the language. rn rnPresenting just over 800 commonly used Chinese terms in thematic order, this book will be useful to students of TCM as an introduction to the concepts of Chinese Medicine and to the English terminology described in greater detail in A Practical Dictionary of Chinese Medicine (also written by Wiseman). It is ideal for those students who are beginning to learn Chinese Medicine after having studied Chinese or for those wishing to master English terminology for the purposes of translation.
