First words
In this book I intend to demonstrate that harmel or wild rue, Peganum harmala L. (Zygophyllaceae), a common weed of the Central Asian Steppes, the Iranian Plateau, and adjacent areas, was the original intoxicant plant represented in the Iranian religious tradition by the term haoma and in the religious tradition of India by the etymologically identical term soma.
