XII, 308 pages, in original paperback binding. The only damage to the book is a sticker stain on the inside of the front cover. In this book the author of eight others explore the most significant alternatives to orthodox medicine to have gained a place in American society from the early 19th century to the present. Neither advocating or debunking these alternatives, they explore phenomena that range from Thomsonism, the early botanical system that was progenitor of the first Native American sects, to the faith healing of contemporary Pentecostals and charismatics; from the water cure movement, which provide important support for the efforts of early feminist reformers, to osteopathic, whose practitioners are now licensed to offer the same range of services as MDs.
