Ferrigno, Peter A (1997) Encircling the Wind: The Inscription of Chinese Medicine on the Australian Landscape. Research Master thesis, Victoria University of Technology.

Abstract

This thesis sets out to explore the ways in which Chinese medicine is practised- and through its practice understood- in Australia. It seeks to establish what Australian practitioners know, and how they know, about a body of medical knowledge from which they are culturally and linguistically far removed.
