Synopsis

Synopsis

This 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 the allopathy v. homeopathy debate. 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.

About Richard Grossinger

Richard Grossinger - Homeopathy: The Great Riddle
Since the issuing of Solar Journal: Oecological Sections by Black Sparrow Press in 1970, Richard Grossinger (richardgrossinger.com) has published some 35 books, most of them with his own press, North Atlantic Books, but also titles with Harper, Doubleday, Sierra Club Books, and J. P. Tarcher, among others. These have ranged from long explorations of science, culture, and spirituality (The Night Sky, Planet Medicine, Embryogenesis) to memoirs and nonfiction novels (New Moon, Out of Babylon) to experimental prose (Book of the Earth and Sky, Spaces Wild and Tame) and science fiction (Mars: A Science Fiction Vision). Grossinger received a PhD in anthropology from the University of Michigan in 1975 and lives with his wife Lindy Hough in Berkeley, California.
Praise

Praise

"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."- Publishers Weekly
