The second edition of the Pictorial Guide to Traditional Management, Husbandry and Diseases of the One-Humped Camel is an upgrade and extension of the 2007 edition. Over 500 pictures have been added to the second edition, and many poor-quality pictures were replaced. As was the case on the first edition, the effort has required a considerable amount of work and interactions with camels and camel nomads.

The book includes more than 1500 illustrations with captions giving detailed information on the races, conformation, breeding, animal husbandry, rearing practices, diseases, slaughter and post-mortem examinations. This is an important contribution to camel sciences.
