From the Jacket:

This book is the most important work to date on the correct identification of medicinal plants in the Sushruta Samhita. The importance of this work cannot be underestimated for teachers, professors, researchers, pharmacists and educational institutions, the world over. Until now the numerous controversies concerning the medicinal plants by Rishi Sushruta have never been thoroughly investigated in a modern scientific manner. Clarifying the Sanskrit synonyms and relating these to the modern botanical Latin names has been the life work of Professor K.C. Chunekar of Varanasi.

Volume one addresses the correct identification of Sanskrit and Latin names for each plant indicated by Rishi Sushruta and volume two (forthcoming) indicates the therapeutic actions of the plants identified in Volume one.
