World Century Compendium to TCM, 1

World Century Compendium to TCM, 1


Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), with a history of thousands of years, is the crystallization of the ancient Chinese's experiences in their struggle against diseases. It is also an integral part of the Chinese's splendid culture. Under the influence and direction of classic Chinese philosophies, it has undergone long-term medical practice and infiltrated into, as well as absorbed from, other subjects in that point in time, thus gradually evolving into a unique medical theoretical system that contributed and is still contributing significantly to the healthcare of the Chinese and the prosperity of the Chinese nation.The basic theories of TCM are the theoretical foundations for guiding traditional Chinese preventive medicine and clinical medicine, and encompass aspects such as the philosophical foundation for TCM, understanding the effects of TCM on the physiology and pathology of the human body, and the principles in TCM for life cultivation, rehabilitation, diagnostics, and therapeutics. In this sense, the basic theories are regarded not only as an important part of TCM, but also as a compulsory course fundamental to the study and research of TCM.This book is compiled to allow the majority of readers to understand the theory of TCM and its methods of diagnosing and treating diseases in a relatively short period of time. It provides a brief introduction to the basic characteristics and theory of TCM, and a detailed schedule of learning commonly occurring diseases and patterns and their estimated 60 corresponding prescriptions. This is a great attempt in initiating more people to understand and apply the theory of TCM to diagnose and treat common diseases and provide corresponding formulas.

World Century Compendium to TCM: Volume 4

World Century Compendium to TCM: Volume 4


Chinese internal medicine is a clinical subject which explains, using traditional Chinese theories, the etiology, pathology and therapeutic rules of the diseases or syndromes belonging to internal medicine. It is also the foundation for learning and research in other clinical branches of Chinese medicine, thus playing a vital role in traditional Chinese medicine (TCM).Chinese internal medicine has had a long history. Its origins can be traced back several thousand years. Through long-term diagnostic and therapeutic practices, a rich collection of experiences and theories in Chinese internal medicine has been accumulated and this has gradually evolved into a complete, distinctive and effective clinical branch. In recent decades, Chinese internal medicine has also undergone more significant developments, especially in the treatment of cardiac or cerebral vascular diseases, digestive tract diseases, renal diseases and autoimmune diseases.In order to popularize Chinese internal medicine and allow readers to grasp its basic theories as well as diagnostic and therapeutic methods, we wrote this book in a language easily comprehensible by the layman. For ease of learning by modern doctors, we proceeded from the current clinical practice and outlined the contents with Western disease names. There are more than 80 diseases discussed in this book. For each disease, the Chinese syndrome differentiation and treatment as well as modern diagnostic key points are provided, to make it more convenient for the readers to study and understand.The study of each disease should begin from its etiology, pathology and diagnostic key points, followed by the differentiated patterns and corresponding treatments. The respective points of caution for each disease should also be well-noted. Finally, the questions forming the “Daily Exercises” are useful for readers to check their comprehension and recall of the material. Given the chance, the theoretical knowledge should also be applied in clinical practice so that past knowledge is tested and new clinical knowledge and skills can be learned. Indices to the prescriptions are supplemented at the end so as to facilitate study and consultation.This book is suitable for those who are enthusiastic about TCM and with basic medical knowledge, as well as clinical TCM doctors, nursing personnel and TCM students.

Century of the Child: Growing by Design 1900-2000

Century of the Child: Growing by Design 1900-2000


In 1900, Swedish design reformer and social theorist Ellen Key published “The Century of the Child,” presaging the coming century as a period of intensified focus and progressive thinking around the rights, development and well-being of children. Taking inspiration from Key-and looking back through the twentieth century-this volume, published to accompany an exhibition at The Museum of Modern Art, examines individual and collective visions for the material world of children, from utopian dreams for the “citizens of the future” to the dark realities of political conflict and exploitation. Surveying more than 100 years of toys, clothing, playgrounds, schools, children’s hospitals, nurseries, furniture, posters, animation and books, this richly illustrated catalogue illuminates how progressive design has enhanced the physical, intellectual, and emotional development of children and, conversely, how models of children’s play have informed experimental aesthetics and imaginative design thinking-engendering, in the process, reappraisals of some of the iconic names in twentieth-century design and enriching the unfolding narrative of modern design with other, less familiar figures. Divided into seven sections-“New Century, New Child, New Art”; “Avant-Garde Playtime”; “Light, Air, Health”; “Children and the Body Politic”; “Regeneration”; “Power Play”; and “Designing Better Worlds”-“The Century of the Child” focuses on individuals and projects that represent innovative and comprehensive contributions to design for children.

Your Century or Mine

Your Century or Mine


Ian McCullough is a man out of time. Literally. One minute he’s in 1891 London working on a time machine with a mad old scientist and the next minute he’s in the twenty-first century in an ocean side mansion in Maine. The house, and the fortune that comes with it, are evidently his, all set up and waiting for him. Now what? When investment adviser Genie Lindsay travels to Maine to meet her reclusive new client, she&#8217,s supposed to be explaining his finances to him. But one look at the guy, all tall-dark-and-handsome, and she’d like to be explaining a few other things as well. Like the sexual revolution for starters. Can one misplaced Victorian gentleman and one modern woman intent on a Girls Gone Wild seduction work out the mystery of time travel? Actually, will they get out of bed long enough to try?
