Paul Unschuld is a remarkably erudite historian from the Institute for the History of Medicine at the University of Munich. The book is a largely successful attempt to explain the history of Chinese medical theories by positioning them within the belief systems in which they developed. Beginning with beliefs rooted in demonology, traditional Chinese medicine continued to evolve as Confucian, Taoist, Buddhist and the Marxist beliefs held sway. What is remarkable abut Chinese medicine is its resilience: each new wave of theory became incorporated and complemented everything that came before.

Medicine in China: A History of Ideas. Unschuld describes medicine's close connection with culture and politics throughout Chinese history. He brings together texts, techniques, and worldviews to understand changing Chinese attitudes toward healing and the significance of traditional Chinese medicine in both China and the Western world.

Unschuld has done more to promote Chinese medicine than perhaps any other Westerner, but he sees it more as a clue to the culture than as an exotic cure. One of the first Western scholars to tackle Chinese medicine in a systematic and serious way, Dr. Unschuld has seen his subject more as a way to interpret Chinese civilization than as a New Age answer to modern medicine.

Though not a history book, this is the work of an historian and is written from an historian's point of view, explaining events against the background of the life of the times in China. It introduces each element of Chinese medical knowledge, each phase of its development in the light of the intelectual, social, political, and economic soil from which it sprang, and shows how the concepts of Chinese medicine were able to gain acceptance and how, despite its gradual evolution, its basic features remained stable for 2000 years. Aside from the wealth of information it contains about the nature and development of Chinese medicine, the author's view of the reception of Chinese medicine in the West is a major contribution to our understanding of alternative healthcare.
