Magic or Medicine?: Investigation of Healing and Healers by Rob Buckman
At a time when conventional medicine is considered, at least by doctors, to offer a wide range of solutions and palliatives to disease than ever before, alternative medicine has gained unprecedented popularity. This book focuses on the elements that seem to be lacking in conventional medicine and the features that attract so many people to homeopathy, chiropracty, acupuncture, herbalism, iridology, macrobiotics, radionics and many other forms of complementary medicine. This book proposes that both conventional and complementary medicine are incomplete - each in their own way - and that both have something to learn from the other.
