Few symbols saturate human civilization so broadly and thoroughly as those of the ubiquitous and enigmatic dragon. This compelling book examines, compares, and analyzes the appearance and symbolization of the Eastern and Western dragons and treats them as the crystallization of human cultures. It shows that Chinese dragons resemble one another but suggest different ideas in different contexts, while Western dragons have different appearances but often denote a single concept. As one of the most notable achievements of dragonology, this book offers astonishing new insights into dragons as zoological «fact», psychological archetypes, and ideological symbols.

In laboratories around the world the active principles in traditional herbal medicines are being isolated and characterized. A systematic effort at the Chinese Academy of Sciences is underway to identify the structure-activity relationships that result from the link between chemistry and medicine that is permitted by this data. This book, which provides the only systematic English-language description of the chemical structures and pharmacological effects of compounds active in traditional Chinese medicines (TCMs), is now in its second edition. The new edition provides English-language monographs on over 9000 chemicals isolated from nearly 4000 natural sources used in Chinese medicine and features the addition of in-depth bioactivity data for many of the compounds. Effects and indications of the medicines are included. Extensive indexing permits cross-referencing among English, Chinese and Latin names for natural medicinal sources, effects and indications, and the chemical components of the medicines. The second edition of Traditional Chinese Medicines includes 2300 new compounds, 2400 additional plant sources, more CAS Registry Numbers, and more pharmacological data. The structure of the book has been extensively reorganised to make cross referencing the data much simpler. This new edition is therefore a substantial improvement on the first edition of this important reference on the structural chemistry of traditional Chinese medicines.

This second selection of studies by Professor Ptak focuses on Chinese maritime trade in the medieval and early modern periods. The first section deals with contacts between China and individual places, in particular Timor, the Sulu Islands, southern India and the islands of the Indian Ocean. Chinese geographical and other accounts of these areas and the trade routes leading to them are examined and where possible, compared with Arabic and Western works from the colonial period. The second part looks at trade in specific commodities such as sandalwood, coral, horses, tortoise-shell, ebony, cloves and tea. Relevant Chinese terms, the uses of each commodity, and the production and distribution are analysed. Both qualitative and quantitative information is drawn from the sources and it is demonstrated that many trade items were much more significant in international business than has been thought. At the same time, these studies highlight the importance of Chinese consumption in driving world commodity flows.

“Human nature is an area of great concern to educational psychologists. It is also a topic frequently discussed by ancient Chinese thinkers and teachers.” —Zhu Yongxin A detailed study of how modern psychology and ancient philosophy impacts education Drawing from his extensive background in psychology, years of historical research, and groundbreaking work in education, China’s acclaimed Professor Zhu Yongxin combines the disciplines of modern psychology and ancient philosophy in one essential volume. These enlightening articles and essays can be used as a starter kit by students and researchers alike. Divided into three informative sections, the book features: Case studies of applied psychology, including educational, personnel, criminal, military, medical, management, and dream psychology Insights of prominent Chinese figures and schools of thought, from Cheng Hao and Cheng Yi to Wang Fuzhi and Yan Yuan Reviews of ancient scholars and modern psychologists, from the lessons of Confucius to the social reforms and brain research of modern China For modern educators, the study of psychology has proven to be an invaluable academic discipline and applied science that helps us better understand the human mind and behavior. Many of its basic principles are not modern at all, but reach back hundreds, even thousands of years to the world’s greatest schools of thought—most notably those in ancient China. In Research of Native Chinese Psychology, China’s foremost educator Zhu Yongxin explores these timeless teachings and ideas which have formed the foundation of modern psychology, social reform, and educational excellence. Covering a wide range of topics, Yongxin takes us on a fascinating tour of the inquisitive mind, from the ancient debates on how we gain knowledge to the latest discoveries in brain research and beyond. Articles include: Basic Theoretical Issues of Ancient Chinese Educational Psychology Educational Psychological Thought in Modern China Psychological Thoughts of Metaphysicians Ancient Chinese Scholar’s Exploration of Zhi and Yi Analysis on Social Political Psychology of Chinese People Contributions of Ancient Chinese Scholars to Brain Research Chinese Psychology in the Social Reform Review of the Research on Chinese Psychology History By comparing and contrasting our rich cultural heritage with more recent examples of applied psychology, Zhu Yongxin brings a refreshing modern perspective to the wisdom and traditions of ancient China. To quote Confucius, “I am not one who was born in the possession of knowledge; I am one who is fond of antiquity, and earnest in seeking it there.”
