The rapid growth of Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM) demands that the public, the medical world, social scientists, the media, and governments pay attention. People are questioning the limits of what modern medicine can accomplish and seeking additional ways to manage their health. While many are enthusiastically adopting complementary and alternative forms of medicine, others are more sceptical. Physicians' attitudes are in transition, and governments are pondering where this increasingly important phenomenon fits into the health care system. The challenge is to keep pace with the changing ways that people view health and illness, take reposibility for themselves, and incorporate CAM into their health care.

This text brings together for  the first time a wide range of leading North American and European social scientists to identify who uses CAM, why they use it, and how they find out about it. Presenting research from psychology, sociology, anthropology and public health, they alert us to the current context of CAM use and provide new models and techniques for understanding its future place in health care.

Review:

It is important for orthodox medicine to understand this entire field...this book makes it clear that good medicine goes beyond merely treating disease.
–Haile T. Debas, Dean of the School of Medicine, University of California, San Francisco

A fine, thoughtful assessment of the way that complementary and alternative therapies and theories are transforming our view of medicine, health and healing.
–James S. Gordon, Director, Center for Mind-Body Medicine, Washington, D.C.

An illuminating and comprehensive overview.
–Patrick C. Pietroni, Dean of Postgraduate General Pratice, University of London, UK
