Editorial Reviews

Review

"A classic in its own right." -- China Review International

"The most recent translation of George Soulie de Morant's Chinese Acupuncture into the English language is a monumental effort...both a clinical text and a philosophical discourse and as such has much to offer the practitioner and the academic." -- Chris Zaslawski, Meeting Point

"This scholarly work, though daunting in its size and detail...is a must-read for all dedicated students and practitioners of acupuncture." -- Pacific Journal of Oriental Medicine

Format: Hardcover
I agree with the other reviews of this book - it is outstanding. One feature which should not be overlooked is that work was written in the 30s, and pre-dates the Maoist revisions of 'TCM' - there is still not a whole lot of material on the 'spiritual' aspects of points, etc., which many say were weeded out during the revisions, but it is still the most thorough textbook available on Chinese Medicine which is not largely shaped by the homogenizing efforts of the Cultural Revolution.

Format: Hardcover
An outstanding description of both the theory and the practice of Acupuncture. There are not many point locations charts and few from the French edition are reproduced. But the quality and the quantity of the text that describes those points makes up for the loss. If I could have only one book on Acupuncture, this one would be it.

Format: Hardcover
This is a very interesting book clinically and historically. Soulie de Morant was an accomplished scholar, and obviously studied Chinese medicine in depth, including classical texts. He often quotes Yang Ji Zhou's "Zhen Jiu Da Cheng" as well as the "Yi Xue Ru Men". Some practitioners, notably Dr. Andrew Tseng, previously the district physician of Shanghai, spoke of Yang Ji Zhou as the pinnacle of acupuncture, and so it is of great value to have so many quotes from this under appreciated classic. Historically this book offers a wonderful opportunity to look into Chinese medicine in the fairly recent past significantly before modern communist standardization of the medicine. Soulie de Morant lived in China from 1901-1917. He practiced and promoted Chinese medicine for the rest of his life in France. Definitely a book worth exploring for practitioners.
