Yanhua Zhang is Associate Professor of Chinese at Clemson University.


"...a comprehensive account of the Chinese medicine physician's practice of mental care." - Asian Anthropology "...carefully prepares the reader for the ethnographic encounter with an excellent introduction to the history and contemporary practice of Chinese medicine that draws on current textbooks, classics of Chinese medicine, the author's own fieldwork and secondary literature ... this exquisitely crafted book sets a new standard in the anthropology of Chinese medicine." - Journal of the Royal Asiatic Society "The author has covered an amazing range of complex ideas in a reader-friendly format, increasing our understanding of both Chinese and conventional Western models. I know of no other book within the English language literature that accurately and comprehensively addresses traditional Chinese ideas of health psychology." - Paul Pedersen, University of Hawaii
