Book Series: Chinese Medicines in Cartoon Series

With its increasing comprehensive strength and growing status in the world, China’s cultural soft power along with cultural confidence turns to renascent tendency. Chinese President Xi Jinping, once claimed that “Traditional Chinese medical theory is the gem of ancient Chinese science and philosophy, and also a key to the treasure of Chinese civilization”, reconfirming their replaceable position and distinct feature of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) in our culture.

Chinese Medicines in Cartoon Series aims at spreading knowledge of TCM and promoting our national culture. The series takes the well-known herbs as entry, tells fact-based tales and illustrates stories with pictures in comic format. The series includes four books, each being a sub-topic of TCM.

Book Ⅰ Tales of Doctors and TCM: stories about miscellaneous and critical cases, mainly from the aspects of herbs’ poetic names and efficacy.

Book Ⅱ Tales of Emperors and TCM: stories about emperors and herbs, mainly from the aspects of herbs' naming and efficacy.

Book Ⅲ Tales of Food and TCM: stories about herbs and diet through the invention of soup, wine and tofu; stories about herbs and its name origin through the naming of motherwort, polygala, etc.

Book Ⅳ Tales of Creative Use and TCM: stories about herbs and efficacy, mainly from the aspects of herbs’ living environment, growing seasons, plant parts and application.

With the increasing emphasis on the traditional Chinese medical theory and its indispensable role in the combat against COVID-19, the whole society has reached the consensus that the traditional Chinese medical theory should be inherited, innovated as well as promoted. In recent years, more and more people have realized that the inheritance of TCM should be cultivated since childhood and that TCM should be introduced into elementary education stage. Thanks to People’s MedicalPublishing House, our team, after more than three years' constant efforts, has completed this series of comic books on TCM. We are hoping that Chinese medicine and traditional Chinese culture can be promoted after its publication.

Owning to the cultural differences between the East and theWest, some parts of the stories have been translated sense-for-sense instead word-for-word.

This series of books is written for Chinese medicine enthusiasts, especially primary and middle school students. Meanwhile, in the form of both Chinese and English, it helps to spread Chinese medicine knowledge and culture so as to promote its internationalization.
