Complementary therapeutics have proliferated since the 1970s. This book treats "alternative" therapies both as a spearhead and as a reflection of widespread changes in attitudes—and of resistance to such changes, which has not infrequently been crammed with blasts against "quacks". Indeed, it was commonly insisted that these "illiterate fungi" were more prevalent than ever; and there were repeated calls for legislative intervention to put down the “hydra” amidst the explosive outrage against what was considered as latter-day witchcraft: the "satanic system of quackery".

 Alternative" therapies seem to be a sort of avant-garde for new ideas about health and the body, as well as symptomatic of much wider societal changes. In short, this annotated bibliography, read as a chronology, traces a change in beliefs and attitudes, where the body, health, nature and society have come to mean different things and imply different consequences for both the individual and society—or particular segments of it.

By no means is the book exhaustive, and given the rapid and growing publication of material in this field, it can never be complete. There are still many areas to be explored, not least of which are the gender and ethnic dimensions in complementary therapeutics, the experiences of users to be more thoroughly examined, the relationship between the lay person and the expert, and the tacit and uncodified knowledge of the practitioner, etc. Thus we take this compilation as a starting point, as we hope you will.

While this compilation is not divided according to different therapies and practices, it does attempt to list publications which cover most of the so-called alternative therapeutics. The listings are arranged simply in alphabetical order by author's surname, capped with a comprehensive index.

Are They Serious? The Discourses of Family Planning, Bio-Citizenship and Nationalism in the Philippines

By Dr. Paul Mathews    $1.99

https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/681248

This book explores the discourses of bio-medicine (ie. Family Planning), nationalism and citizenship specifically in the Philippines. Little has been researched into how the biomedical discourse has helped constitute the nature of citizenship of the Filipino for the purpose of building a nation-State; that is, who is a proper and fit person to be a citizen of and to reproduce the nation-State.  Little attention has been given to basic antagonistic class relations and how these may be linked with Family Planning (FP).

This nationalist narrative is constructed in terms of neo-eugenics and neo-Malthusianism, with the objectives and consequences of maintaining a high level of population growth.  This public health effort gives rise to a new problematique and to a perceived, new “risky” population: unrepentant bodies.

The over-riding question of this paper is: why would the State implement a FPP for the lower classes when it was clearly thought by policy makers that the former were incapable if being uplifted?

Male Prostitution: Two Monographs by Paul Mathews

https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/662166

The first paper describes aspects of male prostitution of Ermita (Manila, Philippines) in the 1980s and '90s. I suggest various reasons for such prostitution, how the boys reconcile their activities with church and morality, and how they construct their sexual identity. The second paper is a critique of "Being A Prostitute" in Australia, that unconvincingly suggests all such prostitutes are gay.

PRINCES OF BEAUTY: Boy Prostitution in Sydney by Dr. Paul Mathews.

Male sex-workers are motivated to achieve; they cannot be considered in purely psychological or sexual terms. Boys from the working & middle classes choose to be prostitutes vis-a-vis classical stereotypes. It questions male prostitutes & their clients as gay, dirty & unmotivated. A sociological study with case histories & a review of the features & causes of & literature on male sex-workers.

This book address the yawning gap in both academic and general knowledge of male prostitution. This counters recent discourse and notions about childhood sexuality. It challenges the notion that boys cannot make conscious decisions to engage in sexual activity; it denies that they have some form of power. It asserts that such sexuality occurs with consent among both the working and middle classes.

Foundation for Single Pinay Moms in College.

 This foundation was set up because in my research I encountered many single moms who had been abandoned by their partner when they became pregnant. One way to get out of their cycle of poverty is to get educated, but they can’t afford it.
