We keep receiving books for review from various publishers. However some books are of such paramount importance that we at the journal office thought one review may not be able to do justice to that book. One opinion may be slanted, perhaps by the individual tastes and preferences of the reviewer. Reviewers from different continents, nations, even different parts of the same nation may perceive a book differently. Why not send books to two or more different reviewers and get their opinion. We requested several publishers to do that and they obliged.

From Volume 3, Number 1, January - June 2002, we started reviews of certains books of paramount importance as "featured books". The first book to be featured on our journal was Ecotoxicology: The Study of Pollutants in Ecosystems by F. Moriarty (Published by Academic Press). Review of that book, as well as the combined index of reviews of all featured books can be accessed by clicking here.

This time we selected several titles for featured reviews. The first title was Handbook of Autopsy Practice which has been published at page 2. The second title selected for featured reviews this time was Medicinal Plants of the World (Vol 2): Chemical Constituents, Traditional and Modern Medicinal Uses by Ivan A. Ross. Volume 1 of this excellent book has already been reviewed in Vol 4, No. 2 (July - December 2003), and can be accessed by clicking here.

In Association with Amazon.com

Keeping in with our policy of featured books, we requested the reviewers not only to send us detailed reviews, but also to rate this book on a scale of ten. The following rating scale was provided to the reviewers.

If the resolution is less than this, you may see broken or overlapping tables/graphics, graphics overlying text or other anomalies. It is strongly advised to switch over to this resolution to read this journal - and especially this review. These pages are viewed best in Netscape Navigator 4.7 and above.
