About this book

Language: Bilingual in English and Arabic

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.
