Publication of an English translation of "Fundamentals of Chinese Medicine" is an important step toward assuring that a process of serious questioning will take place and that the medical dialogue between East & West will have lasting importance and conscious direction. Only accurate information will allow the beginnings of an American or European version of Oriental Medicine. A new variant of Oriental Medicine must be based on careful and thoughtful study of primary sources, on reflection, and on information. Otherwise, it will be a mutant based on fantasy. Every bit of information from the Orient must be considered a precious artifact requiring our intense examination. "Fundamentals of Chinese Medicine" is an excellent example of this need and process. The translators have made an excellent choice for the commencement of their proposed series. This volume is considered by many Chinese practitioners to be the most important introductory textbook of the last two decades. It continues to be a standard work at institutes of traditional medicine throughout Asia. Western readers can finally have an accurate sense of how the Chinese are presenting the Oriental medical tradition of this era. The translators' attention to nuance and detail is impressive; each word appears to have been weighed in delicate linguistic scales. This volume is a vast improvement in translation standards and will ensure a deepened appreciation of how the Chinese have applied the methodology of Oriental Medicine to the circumstances of their contemporary society.
