"Coulter’s book gives those of us involved in holistic practice a sense of history, a broad and humanizing perspective on the politics and economics of contending medical philosophies in the marketplace….His tone is unsensational and earnest. His research is stunning."
— Norman Weinstein in East-West Journal

This is essential reading (together with the first volume of the series) for anyone interested in the true origins of western medicine from a perspective which doesn't antecedently glorify the subject matter. The author is strongly biased toward homeopathy, but despite this - or perhaps because of it - the truth is allowed to emerge about the political context in which conventional medicine established itself as uniquely valid in the eye of western thought. This is a serious piece of scholarship, with copious references provided for the researcher interested in pursuing this further.
