Providing a guide to the development of herbal medicine in the western world, this is a revised edition of a work first published in 1981. It contains basic information on modern herbal practice as well as historical details about the personalities who shaped its development. It discusses the conflict in the ranks of herbal practitioners and organizations, and looks at the growing volume of clinical research which is establishing the scientific credentials of herbal medicine. Information about ancient and modern "miracle" cures such as ginkgo biloba, aloe vera, saw palmetto and St John's wort is also included.
