About this product
- DescriptionFirst published in 1973, this is an essential work on the corruption of the medical establishment and its historic roots in witch hunts.

They build on their classic expos(c) of the demonisation of women healers and the political and ecomic mopolisation of medicine, bringing it up to date with today's changing attitudes to these issues.
