Religion, Medicine and Healing is an anthology developed from a critique that many people have formulated concerning the relations of contemporary western biomedicine and local healing traditions.
Many local traditions, it happens, are in danger of being forgotten, not transmitted, and are even discredited by orthodox biomedicine. At best, most local traditions have survived as fragmented pieces of once greater totalities. Everywhere, Western biomedicine has occupied spaces that were once the domains of local specialists.
