Product Description


This collection of essays is remarkably even in both quality and perspective...Even though alternative medicines encompass a strong leftist countercultural component, the essays in this volume poignantly demonstrate the many instances in which alternative medicides have forged connections with oppositional subcultures on the political or cultural right.. This openness to nuance and complexity makes this volume an essential reference work for anyone interest in understanding more clearly why more than 40 percent of adult Americans now use at least one form of Alternative medicine.

-The Journal of American History

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
If you are interested in the political labyrinth that is medicine and health care in the US, this is a great book. The essays are all fully accessible to non-academics (meaning it isn't written to impress other academics, but to actually provide information for real people) and are interesting in and of themselves. As a body of work, it provides some real insights into the politics of the healing arts. A must-have for any CAM or integrative med practitioner.
