Handbook of African Medicinal Plants Second Edition Book Review:

With over 50,000 distinct species in sub-Saharan Africa alone, the African continent is endowed with an enormous wealth of plant resources. While more than 25 percent of known species have been used for several centuries in traditional African medicine for the prevention and treatment of diseases, Africa remains a minor player in the global natural products market largely due to lack of practical information. This updated and expanded second edition of the Handbook of African Medicinal Plants provides a comprehensive review of more than 2,000 species of plants employed in indigenous African medicine, with full-color photographs and references from over 1,100 publications. The first part of the book contains a catalog of the plants used as ingredients for the preparation of traditional remedies, including their medicinal uses and the parts of the plant used. This is followed by a pharmacognostical profile of 170 of the major herbs, with a brief description of the diagnostic features of the leaves, flowers, and fruits and monographs with botanical names, common names, synonyms, African names, habitat and distribution, ethnomedicinal uses, chemical constituents, and reported pharmacological activity. The second part of the book provides an introduction to African traditional medicine, outlining African cosmology and beliefs as they relate to healing and the use of herbs, health foods, and medicinal plants. This book presents scientific documentation of the correlation between the observed folk use and demonstrable biological activity, as well as the characterized constituents of the plants.

Natural Food Colorants Book Review:

In this second edition of Natural Food Colorants two new chapters have been added and we have taken the opportunity to revise all the other chapters. Each of the original authors have brought up to date their individual contributions, involving in several cases an expansion to the text by the addition of new material. The new chapters are on the role of biotechnology in food colorant production and on safety in natural colorants, two areas which have undergone considerable change and development in the past five years. We have also persuaded the publishers to indulge in a display of colours by including illustrations of the majority of pigments of importance to the food industry. Finally we have rearranged the order of the chapters to reflect a more logical sequence. We hope this new edition will be greeted as enthusiastically as the first. It remains for us, as editors, to thank our contributors for undertaking the revisions with such thoroughness and to thank Blackie A&P for their support and considerable patience. G. A. F. R. J. D.
