The author is an eminent specialist of traditional Chinese medicine and has been frequently in charge of English translation for international acupuncture conferences. He has a deep understanding of acupuncture teaching and saw a requirement for a dictionary specifically written for the acupuncture practitioner but also for the student. This current dictionary fills that role, and contains over 3000 entries, each of which has a detailed explanation in English. Each entry is indexed in English, followed by Chinese characters, and pinyin.


The Dictionary includes a number of appendices: ‘Brief Chinese Chronology’, ‘The Heavenly Stems’, ‘The Twenty-Four Solar Terms’, ‘ Sixty Pairs of Heavenly-Stem-Earthly-Branch Match’, and ‘International Standardised Nomenclature of Acupuncture Points’. There are also Indexes for ‘Chinese Pinyin Entries’ and for ‘English Entries’.

The text throughout is well-illustrated with detailed drawings and tables. A number of coloured plates are also included. A very handy and well-priced reference!
