Rheumatology in Chinese Medicine by Gerard Guillaume, MD and Mach Chieu, MD (hardcover, 426 pp., 1st Ed.) While rheumatological disorders (e.g., joint and other musculoskeletal pain) are perhaps the most commonly seen problems in clinics of Chinese medicine, until now there has been no comprehensive book on this important subject. Rheumatology in Chinese Medicine is the first of its kind in any language. 

The subject is presented in four parts:

PART ONE lays the groundwork for the traditional Chinese approach to rheumatology, including a discussion of the makeup of the human organism and the interaction between movement and the channels. 

PART TWO is a translation of the chapters on painful obstruction (bi) and lower back pain from one of the best modern Chinese texts on internal medicine. 

PART THREE presents the authors' own approach to rheumatological disorders, which utilizes many aspects of the modern French energetic acupuncture models, including barrier and trigger points. 

PART FOUR contains a rich selection of translations from a dozen premodern classical texts regarding rheumatological disorders.
