In this book, based on his lectures, the author endeavors to ground his exposition of the metabolic diseases on a firm physiologic foundation. Experimental work is fully discussed and copious references, not all confined to the European literature, are given. The section on carbohydrate metabolism and diabetes is particularly extensive. There is a short but excellent chapter on water balance and edema. The vitamins and avitaminoses are dealt with rather sketchily.
