Ann Cecil-Sterman has been writing methodical clinical manuals assembled from her study of the oral tradition of Jeffrey Yuen and her own busy practice. This time, she focuses upon the topic of pulse diagnosis. She is clear and concise, providing a detailed approach to this method. The images contained herein elucidate many areas that have long proven to be confusing for learners. Her years of work on these oral transmissions is to be commended. At long last, this tradition will be available for generations to come. --William Morris, PhD, DAOM, author of Li Shi-Zhen's Pulse Studies, An Illustrated Guide All holistic systems of medicine contain at their core a deep awareness that the human body consists of more than just fluids and tissue and bone. Chinese medicine specifically views the body as a hierarchically organized fusion of spirit, energy and matter. No treatment should ever be administered without considering the body's energetic planes first. Among the various modalities of Chinese medicine, pulse diagnosis once reigned supreme as a direct way to perceive energetic imbalances. This book represents a practical and sensitive introduction to the complex topic of Oriental pulse diagnosis that makes this waning art accessible. Another valuable contribution to the profession by Ann Cecil-Sterman! --Heiner Fruehauf, PhD, LAc, Founding Professor, School of Classical Chinese Medicine at the National College of Natural Medicine, Portland, Oregon.

This book presents an analysis of Chinese grammar from a systemic functional perspective. Its main focus is the clausal grammar of Chinese, and Dr Li provides a thorough analysis of Chinese clauses according to their constituent parts. However, uniquely, the second half of the book extends this examination into an analysis of Chinese discourse and text analysis. Professor Halliday's foreword praises Eden Li's thorough analysis, and shows its relevance to the field of systemic functional linguistics in general. Systemic Functional Grammar of Chinese provides the reader with a general theoretical framework of grammar and discourse analysis from a systemic functional perspective.
In this extraordinarily original and profound work, Noam Chomsky discusses themes in the study of language and mind since the end of the sixteenth century in order to explain the motivations and methods that underlie his work in linguistics, the science of mind, and even politics. This edition includes a new and specially written introduction by James McGilvray, contextualising the work for the twenty-first century. It has been made more accessible to a larger audience; all the French and German in the original edition has been translated, and the notes and bibliography have been brought up to date. The relationship between the original edition (published in 1966) and contemporary biolinguistic work is also explained. This challenging volume is an important contribution to the study of language and mind, and to the history of these studies since the end of the sixteenth century.
