Book News Annotation:
A reference for health care clinicians and students, first published in 1940. The 19th edition, revised over four years, takes account of the integration of alternative and complementary approaches into standard western medical care, defining terms relating to herbal remedies and traditional cures from other cultures. The illustrations are useful rather than decorative, and most are in color. The pronunciation of unusual terms is indicated. The boxed volume is tabbed.
