    DescriptionThe scientists, academics and practitioners writing this book are not against complementary or alternative medicine (CAM), but they are very much for evidence-based medicine and single standards. They aim to counter-balance the many uncritical books on CAM and to stimulate intelligent, well-informed public debate.TOPICS INCLUDE: What is CAM? Why is it so popular? Patient choice; Reclaiming compassion; Teaching CAM at university; Research on CAM; CAM in court; Ethics and CAM; Politics and CAM; Homeopathy in context; Concepts of holism in medicine; Placebo, deceit and CAM; Healing but not curing; CAM and the media."

    Review quote
    "[T]his book represents the very best of contemporary albeit on the whole skeptical scholarship. It is highly refreshing to find a collection that does not toe a line but instead gives a wide range of pros and cons and includes some new and stimulating ideas... [I]t is wonderful that academic honesty is still alive and well... For those people actively researching in the field of CAM this book is a 'must have'."--Kevin M. Purday "Metapsychology "
