(ii) Research in general history of medicine
The first monograph on the general history of Chinese medicine is A Medical History of China by Chen Bangxian, a famous contemporary Chinese medical historian.The work had undergone revisions in 1932,1954 and 1957, separately, and was translated into Japanese.Similar books that followed included History of Chinese Medicine by Wang Jimin and Wu Liande and An Outline History of Medicine.Works in this genre written in more than four decades prior to the mid—1990s included A History of Chinese Medicine edited by the China Academy of Traditional Chinese Medicine, which, though not being published formally, had had 100,000 copies printed for medical institutions at/above the county level;and A History of Chinese Medicine by Liu Boji, An Outline History of Chinese Medicine by Jia Dedao, A Brief History of Chinese Medicine by Yu Shenchu, and Medicine in Ancient China by Zhao Pushan.
(iii) Research in history of specific diseases
The more outstanding work in this regard was the 900,OOO—character A New History of Diseases of China, as it was the first of its kind in the country.Besides, there was A History of Plague Pandemic, which falls into the category ofmonographic works on a special single disease.
(iv) Research in the history of specific branches of medicine
Significant achievements had been gained in this regard over the 40 years or more prior to the mid—1990s — in the history of surgery in 1970s,in the history of orthopedics, traumatology and acupuncture in the 1970—80s, and in the history of other branches of medicine as shown by the monographic works and thematic theses published.In addition to histories of different branches of medicine, the history of medical diagnosis turned out to be unique in its discussion of the development of TCM therapeutic principle of "basing treatment on syndrome differentiation." In TCM diagnosis, considerable importance is attached to pulse—taking (pulse diagnosis) and tongue inspection (tongue diagnosis), and the TCM researchersnot only traced back to their origins and studied their evolvement, but also tested and summarized them with modern scientific means.
