Summary
"To have lived in China at a time when Westerners were beginning to try to understand Chinese medical thought, and when China was beginning to recognize the need of the Western approach to scientific medicine, has been a unique experience. This book is the personal record of how one American doctor discovered that medicine was a builder of bridges between nations and cultures." -Prologue
