The book looks at the scope and scientific basis of herbal medicine in the context of traditional cultures, particularly in West Africa, and highlights both the advantages and disadvantages of traditional medicine. This excellent effort represent the first serious attempt to bring Medicinal Plant into harmonious relationship with the practice of Traditional Medicine in Africa. The doubts and dogma that have beclouded this subject over the decades seem at last, through efforts of this kind, to be giving way to rational scientific analysis.
