"This is a fascinating book which deserves a wide readership. As well as its obvious interest to complementary and alternative therapists, it raises important general issues of health care ethics and law. It should certainly be read by the general practitioner and health authority purchasers who may be interested in purchasing CAM therapies, and will, it is to be hoped, be taken up by the growing number of medical schools offering special study modules in this subject."-Journal of Medical Ethics "This book consist of six different essays by authors with widely varying perspectives. All the articles discuss some aspect of health policy related to alternative medicine, including insurance coverage, scientific validity, integration with conventional medicine, and access to treatment. The views range from S. Barrett's complete rejection of nearly all forms of nonconventional treatment to V. Patel's advocacy for greater integration of many of the principles and techniques of alternative approaches. The article by S.M. Weitzman on insurance coverage for complementary and alternative medicine is arguably the best article in the book."-Religious Studies Review
