This is the first multidisciplinary work to address in a serious and strictly scientific way the hows and whys underlying the actions of ultra high dilutions (UHD). The contributions, all of them written by leading scientists in the fields of physics, physiology and biophysics, present an overview of UHD research which, to some extent, has been stimulated by the recognition of the therapeutic efficacy of homoeopathy. The book is divided into four parts. Part 1 presents relevant data from physiological laboratories, serving as an introduction to what follows. Part 2 evaluates and discusses the most promising physical theories. Part 3 deals with biophysical aspects and Part 4 appraises the medical and historical context. The book concludes with a discussion of future research prospects. Current research activity, as the book convincingly emphasises, is generating genuinely new scientific concepts which are likely to have consequences far beyond biology and medicine. Ultra High Dilution is a fertile source of references and concepts and should command wide attention, and stimulate yet more interest. For physicists, biologists, and medical scientists interested in the science of ultra high dilution and in its efficacy in homoeopathy.

Editorial Reviews

` . . . a most welcome tome and makes a significant contribution to the understanding of the way homeopathic medicines work. This book adds significantly to our understanding and will therefore appeal not only to the homeopathic buff but also to the scientific community as a whole. I can strongly recommend this book which is certain to become a classic in the fields of ultra high dilution research and homeopathy in general. ' HomInt R&D Newsletter, 1/94
