A Modern Medical Insight into and Interpretation of a Malay Medical Manuscript 
-
 Abdul Ghani Hussain

The author is a qualified doctor in Western medicine with four decades of clinical experience. As a result of his wife's intolerance of such treatments, he and his wife began a mission to explore, document and experiment with traditional Malay medicine. The foundation of this book is a study of a collection of prescriptions probably written down by a student of traditional medicine many years ago. There is a transliteration of the original text from Jawi into Malay together with an English translation. The main divisions of the book are one part laying out the prescriptions, followed by another part listing the recommended vegetative and non-vegetative material to be used in treatment. The section on vegetative items includes a colour photograph of each together with a description, what treatments it is used for and scientific evidence for the item's efficacy, if any. New Hardback. First Edition 402 pages with a list of references, a glossary and an index
