Synopsis

Synopsis

Planet Medicine is a major work by an anthropologist who looks at medicine in a broad context. In this edition, additions to this classic text include a section on Reiki, a comparison of types of palpation used in healing, updates on craniosacral therapy, and a means of understanding how different alternative medicines actually work. Illustrated throughout, this is the standard on the history, philosophy, and anthropology of this subject.

"Richard Grossinger has written a classic. He is that rarest of writers, one who combines spiritual sensitivity with enormous intellectual understanding and a style of great clarity and elegance."- Andrew Harvey"Planet Medicine is a must read for all who are interested in health care, what it is, what is was, and what it must do in order to survive. Grossinger has done a masterful job of covering an immense field of information."- John E. Upledger"The author places the individual and the disease in the broadest possible context, and introduces a fresh or forgotten notion of illness as a crucible in which the individual must reassess his or her own life and its social contexts."- Publishers Weekly
