CHOICE Review

The second edition of this book consists of monographs summarizing the latest scientific findings about the toxicology and clinical pharmacology of 17 widely used herbs; 13 of them were included in the previous edition. This edition features a new editor, and most of the chapter contributors (mainly from the Univ. of Minnesota at Minneapolis) are also new. All chapter references have been updated. Following a summary of the herb's therapeutic use and toxicity, the book addresses the herb's history, current use, available products, pharmacology/toxicology, pharmacokinetics/toxicokinetics, adverse effects, and regulatory status. The pharmacology and toxicology sections are divided by organ system and sometimes include case reports. The book's intended audience includes forensic professionals and "researchers and clinicians interested in more context-oriented clinical information than is available in most 'herbal' references." Chapter contents are based on original studies published in peer-reviewed journals, and written at a level for physicians, pharmacists, toxicologists, graduate students, and chemists. Libraries will want to keep the previous edition, in addition to the new one, for its coverage of additional herbs. Summing Up: Recommended. All health science libraries; graduate students through professionals/practitioners. N. Kupferberg Ohio State University
