A Profile in Alternative Medicine: The Eclectic Medical College, 1845-1942
John S. Haller, Jr. (1999) - hardcover

Haller's expertly written treatment of one of the most important Eclectic medical schools in the US is filled with the personalities and drama, as well as the struggles to survive, that characterized the EMI. The school lasted nearly 100 years in Cincinnati and was defeated, as all non-conventional schools were for a time, by politics and socio-economic forces that were too much.


America's Botanico-Medical Movements: Vox Populi
Alex Berman and Michael A. Flannery (2001) - hardcover

Considered the first comprehensive book on the American botanical movement, "Vox Populi" is a scholarly, yet entertaining, and exhaustive history of botanical therapeutics.  The authors tell the entire story of the movement from its rise and fall in the 19th century to a second wave of enthusiasm born in the 1960s counterculture, and the recent reemergence of phytotherapy in the United States
