Book Description
The profession of chiropractic in New Jersey has come a long way since the days when chiropractors were routinely thrown in jail for practicing without a license — a license impossible to obtain due to fanatical anti-chiropractic lobbying by organized medicine.

As a profession, chiropractic has a relatively short history — little more than 100 years. Its success in gaining recognition is rather remarkable when one considers the attacks on it from outside and the disagreements among various groups within it.

In A Profession Persecuted, Leonard F. Vernon, DC, provides a richly detailed illustrated historical perspective on the struggle of chiropractic, beginning with the origins of the profession and then focusing on the drama in his home state.

Illustrated with more than 90 historical photographs, some dating back a century, this book will educate, entertain, and even surprise chiropractors and anyone else interested in the profession of chiropractic, or the history of medicine..

About the Author
Leonard Vernon has practiced chiropractic for over 24 years. A graduate of New York Chiropractic College, he has served as director of Post Graduate Education for the University of BridgeportCollege of Chiropractic, as well as an assistant professor of clinical sciences at the same institution. Dr. Vernon has published a number of professional papers in various peer-reviewed chiropractic and medical journals. He resides with his wife and children in Voorhees, New Jersey.

Synopsis
Explains how the American Medical Association conspired to discredit chiropractors and monopolize medicine and discusses how the author took on the AMA in a precedent-setting case that went all the way to the Supreme Court.

Amazon.com Review
This is the story of a courageous group of chiropractors who charged the powerful American Medical Association with an antitrust suit and won. Chiropractic was apparently just a little too successful for the medical establishment's liking. Dr. Wilk and his colleagues had the scientific studies to prove it. Thanks to them, Americans retain the ability to choose how they want their backs cared for.

Reader Review
Excellent, Accurate, and Informative, 17 October, 1998
Reviewer: A reader from Newmarket, Ontario
This book really tells it like it is! It also shows how medicine has tried to cover up, ingnore, or distrort chiropractic because it cannot control it. This book demonstrates the fear, most likely financially motivated, that some in the medical profession have against chiropractic. Although the tide is definitely changing in chiropractic's favor! Today, many medical practitioners (including my own medical doctor) are recommending chiropractic care for conditions they have had little success with in the past (such as back and joint conditions). Medicine may feel threatened by chiropractic science and its benefits - especially the older and less-informed "dinosaurs" who should embrace chiropractic care rather than fear it through their own ignorance and "mis-information". Chiropractic has repeatedly shown through scientific study that a more effective, cheaper, and SAFER method exists for treating ailments such as: neck, back, & joint pain, and many other musculo-skeletal conditions. Although unfortunate accidents can happen in any profession - as exemplified in a quote by Ralph Nater that stated over 150,000 people per year are, "killed every year in the US by drugs & surgury", chiropractic care is still much safer than medicine and/or osteopathy. This book reaffirms medicine's attempt to use fear propoganda to further its own means - without regard to the patient's well-being or safety. It does this by distorting the facts and using isolated examples to discourage chiropractic utilization. Since medicine does not have chiropractors in their "back pocket" (like it does osteopaths and physiotherapists), they engage in fear-mongering as an attempt to monopolize health care. Hopefully, this book will help to expose those who have distorted the facts, and improve healthcare for the rest of us.

Description
This book documents organized medicine's communications to its members about chiropractic, demonstrating how by fighting chiropractic, organized medicine was serving itself and the profession: focusing on unity in the face of factionalism, demonstrating its superiority in the face of a doubting public, and developing and maintaining its dominance in the face of bureaucratic and legislative challenges to that dominance. Much has been written about how medicine's opposition to chiropractic spurred that profession to fight for its survival. This book shows how medicine's opposition to chiropractic was just as important for the development of medicine.
