A Herbal of Iraq edited by Shahina A. Ghazanfar and Chris J. Thorogood
An illustrated and informative guide to Iraqi herbal medicine.
The flora of Iraq is particularly rich and varied, owing to the country's diverse landscapes of deserts, plains, and mountains. Accordingly, plant-based medicine has always played an important role in the daily lives of Iraqis. Edited by experts from both the University of Oxford and the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew--working in collaboration with Iraqi botanists-- A Herbal of Iraq describes fifty plants and their uses in traditional herbal medicine in the region. In addition to the wealth of information it contains, this dual-language English-Arabic herbal is illustrated throughout with archival and contemporary botanical art, making it an object of beauty as well as a helpful resource.
