Each volume of the Dictionary of World Biography contains 250 entries on the lives of the individuals who shaped their times and left their mark on world history. This is not a who's who. Instead, each entry provides an in-depth essay on the life and career of the individual concerned. Essays commence with a quick reference section that provides basic facts on the individual's life and achievements. The extended biography places the life and works of the individual within an historical context, and the summary at the end of each essay provides a synopsis of the individual's place in history. All entries conclude with a fully annotated bibliography.
Like many other American medical schools, Hahnemann has had its share of problems, financial and otherwise. The civil rights and radical student movements of the 1960s and 1970s, however, pushed the College into a more politically conscious view of itself as a health care provider to the inner city and as a producer of health professionals.

Gerard Bocquee is a Christian homeopath with a passion to see the health of people restored through homeopathic medicine. With over 25 years experience as a homeopath and a great desire to see people set free from the bondage of medication, this work is the result of God’s call on his life to teach on the benefits of Homeopathy as a God-given system of medicine. This work is a first of a series of publications aimed at illustrating God’s love for mankind by putting together a medication based on the law of similitude, now called Homeopathy. Rivers of Health is a ministry of health and healing based on God’s principle of similitude which is proficient throughout the Bible. Inspired by God it serves one purpose which is to correct the errors of those who have subjected themselves to the teachings of modern medicine.
