An illustrated and informative guide to Iraqi herbal medicine.

Plant-based medicine has always played an important role in people’s daily lives in Iraq, a country with a particularly rich and diverse flora, owing to its diverse habitats of deserts, plains and mountains. The inspiration for this book was the work of the late Iraqi herbalist, Abdul Jaleel Ibrahim Al-Quragheely, who documented the country’s flora and its uses in ethnobotanical medicine. He opened a local practice in 1990 and dispensed herbal medicines for six years when communities were most in need.

Edited by experts at the University of Oxford and the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, in collaboration with botanists in Iraq, A Herbal of Iraq describes 50 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 richly illustrated throughout with archival and contemporary botanical, making it an object of beauty as well as a helpful resource.
