The publisher:

Description:
This a is a wonderfully succinct book which sets forth the history, essence, and methodology of homeopathy. The book is well organized in 5 major sections. There is a very thorough overview of the precepts and tenets of the practice, its historical origins, a detailed and well-covered biography of Samuel Hahnemann and a review of the politics of allopathy v. homeopathy. It is further embellished with copious annotations, an appendix with an actual case history and a very fine reference for homeopathic resources such as organizations, suppliers and other texts covering a variety of related topics. Call it a perfect Homeopathy 101 text if you will, the author makes a very even-handed presentation of the material, including the politics of medicine as they have evolved in the USA over the past century.

Author Biography:
Richard Grossinger as born in New York City in 1944. He received a B.A. from Amherst College in 1966 ad a Ph.D. in anthropology from the University of Michigan in 1975. He is the author of many books, including The Night Sky, Embryogenesis, and Homeopathy: An Introduction for Skeptics and Beginners. He lives with his wife Lindy Hough in Berkeley, California.

Reviews/Endorsements:
"Grossinger has distilled the essence of each of the concepts in homeopathy and explained them as clearly as can be stated."
- Julian Winston

"This is an excellent introduction both to the issues within homeopathy and to the social issues around homeopathy....How often is it that a writer presents cogent sociology, history, and anthropology, alongside an obvious ethical commitment, not merely to a solution, but to the intricacies of the problem and, beyond that, emanates a strong faith in a mysterious project called 'alchemy'?"
- Iain Marrs

"Grossinger is penetrating in his analysis of homeopathy. His lucid, informative, and sympathetic account demonstrates how homeopathic theory is itself a critique of standard medical practice."
