Trade paperback book | $14.95
This work is both a manual for the practice of traditional Chinese gynecology and an engrossing source for Zheng Manqing's (Cheng Man-Ching's) views on major figures in the history of 20th century Chinese medicine and the adaptation of traditional medicine to the modern world. A true intellectual, Zheng mas a "Master of Five Arts," excelling not only as a lifelong student, practitioner, author, and national leader in Chinese traditional medicine, but highly advanced in painting, poetry, calligraphy, and martial arts as well. Before leaving China, he was the personal physician to Chiang Kai-shek; however he is most recognized in the West for Zheng style taijiquan, being one of the first teachers of taiji to expatriate to the West during the Mao era. Douglas Wile, the translator, includes a lengthy and absorbing introduction that gives us a gripping perspective on Zheng's life and message to the world: that in the customs and traditions of China one could find all the resources for a physically, esthetically, and spiritually realized life.
