  • Most books on CAM only ask whether CAM works. This books shows the importance of also asking why CAM is supposed to work-because unreflective experimentation with CAM can subtly change people's health and religion
  • This book addresses healthcare consumers, conventional medical doctors and allied health professionals, CAM providers, healthcare policymakers, and courts (civil and constitutional).
  • This book should be of special interest to experts and educators in biomedical ethics, tort law (informed consent, negligence, battery; physician-patient relationship, fiduciary responsibility, abuse, manipulation; fraud, deception, misrepresentation, unfair business practices), and constitutional law (First Amendment establishment clause).
