Sam Homola, D.C.
A behind-the-scenes look at chiropractic written by a forty-three- year veteran in the field. Samuel Homola, D.C., takes a frank and objective look at chiropractic and concludes that its fundamental theory -that "subluxations," or the adjusment of misaligned spinal bones, will restore and maintain health- is false.

As its title suggests, this book provides a sociologist's perspective on "healers...practising...outside the boundaries of conventional medicine". Easthope's narrative reports from the field enliven his analysis, which provides a social context for understanding the appeal and varying 'effectiveness' of both unorthodox and orthodox healers. The resulting book, concise and readable, contains much of interest from a general-semantics perspective.
Alternative Medicine or Magical Healing The Trick Is to Know the Difference
The Trick Is to Know the Difference
George A. Ulett
Although alternative medicine is now studied seriously in The National Institutes of Health and Harvard Medical School, questions of efficacy and practitioner motivation still cloud the topic. Alternative Medicine or Magical Healing attempts to give a balanced picture of the New Age healing movement and sorts out which treatments should be approached with caution or avoided, and which might be useful as complements to traditional medicine. Dr. Ulett was one of the first American physicians to study in China and Japan, and pioneered the use of acupuncture in this country. His long interest in holistic healing reflects an open-mindedness to other ways of treating and an interest in healing both body and spirit. Dr. Ulett is a past Director of the Missouri Department of Mental Health. He currently has a private practice in Psychosomatic Medicine and Psychiatry.
