This single volume probably contains more original authoritative information than any other book on the subject in any language. The book is an outgrowth of a symposium on the structure and function of the kidney in health and disease, which took place in Minneapolis in 1930. The editorial task was initiated by Hilding Berglund and completed by Grace Medes and some of the contributors. For the purposes of this volume the participants in the symposium have revised their contributions and amplified them to some extent to bring them down to date. Several contributions not included in the symposium were added to make the work complete. The list of contributors contains the names of men who have made note-worthy contributions to the subject. Among some of these are the late G. Carl Huber, Franz Volhard, A. N. Richards, James L. Gamble, E. T. Bell, Leonard Rowntree, Longcope, Louis Leiter, M. Herbert
