Book Title: Chinese Magical Medicine

Author: Michel Strickmann

Book Description:

One of the few books ever published in English on Buddhist healing in China, this is a seminal title in both the fields of Chinese religions and the history of Chinese medicine. More than any other sinologist before or since, Michel Strickmann's exciting and engaging writing style transforms his impressive works of scholarship into page-turners that are a true joy to read. When I first encountered Chinese Magical Medicine as an MA student in the early 2000s, it was a major inspiration to me, and I can credit it with drawing me into my field of study.
