Robert Lebling and Donna Pepperdine have completed a rigorous study of the health remedies traditionally recognized across Arabia--an ambitious project executed with conscientious attention to detail. The result is an impressive body of research, combining a thorough text with good pictorial coverage --a unique approach to a subject that will be of widespread interest. This timely volume comes just as the age-old regional knowledge of the remedies naturally available--encapsulated in an oral tradition carrying hundreds of years of empirical knowledge--is being allowed to drift from contemporary consciousness, replaced by a new blind faith in the remedies widely promoted by the major pharmaceutical companies.
