The Yellow Emperor's Classic has become a landmark in the history of Chinese civilization. In recent years, traditional medical practice has seen a dynamic revival in China and throughout many countries in the Western world. Elements of this time-honored therapy, including acupuncture and the harmony of human spirit with the natural world, have become part of mainstream medical practice; The Yellow Emperor's Classic provides the historical and philosophical foundation of this practice. Ilza Veith provides an extensive introduction to her monumental translation of this classic work, which is written in the form of a dialogue in which the emperor seeks information from his minister Ch'I-Po on all questions of health and the art of healing. A new foreword by Ken Rose places the translation in its historic contexts, underlining its significance to the Western world's understanding of Chinese medicine.

“The most important theoretical text in the huge corpus of traditional Chinese medical literature.”—Science
“Veith has created a charming, yet scholarly work; her detailed, solidly documented early chapters provide insight that makes reading the dialogues rewarding and meaningful. All else that is needed is a comfortable chair and a few quiet hours.”—Archives of Internal Medicine
“This classic is a work of the greatest significance for the general reader interested in sinological matters as well as for physicians. . . . It provides insight into the nature of the Chinese civilization and an aspect of the modern problems of that civilization. . . . This is a beautiful book.”—California Medicine
