This volume combines a number of examinations of alternative therapies, in widely diverging contexts, under the title of communication. The contributions discuss the difficult question of communication or non-communication between East and West, or between the alternative and the established, in both therapeutic and scientific worlds. In addition, the discussion of the body, or of nature itself, as a communicating medium, in command of its own organising and healing resources, is breached. This third volume contains contributions from areas such as psychology, sociology, anthropology, medicine, and natural science. In 1995, the three year old International Network for Research on Alternative Therapies invited outstanding international researchers to present their work under the heading, "Communication in and about Alternative Therapies". The most significant results of that seminar, held in Copenhagen, are published here.
