Other Healers

Unorthodox Medicine in America

Edited by Norman Gevitz

About the Author

Norman Gevitz is professor of the history of medicine at Ohio University. He is the editor of Other Healers: Unorthodox Medicine in America, also available from Johns Hopkins.

Reviews

This book deserves an unambiguous welcome as an overview of American irregular medicine which is simultaneously comprehensive (it ranges smoothly from traditional folk medicine and early nineteenth-century medical botany up to Oral Roberts and contemporary chiropractic) and compact (all this in three hundred pages).
