This volume on normal and pathologic physiology deals with blood, lymph and immunity. It is a composite effort of eleven authors with chapters on the morphology of the blood, hemoglobin and its derivatives, respiratory albuminoids of invertebrates, blood plates, bone marrow, blood coagulation, hemorrhage, blood transfusion, the lacunar system (including edema and dehydration), lymph and lymph production, lymph glands, immunity (this chapter by Bordet), and anaphylaxis. Each chapter has limited literature references. The book as a whole is weakened by the absence of an index at the end so that the contents must be hunted up by the scant aid of the table of chapters. The chapter by Bordet on immunity is particularly good. It seems significant, however, that in such an ambitious monograph on the blood and lymph, with chapters on hemorrhage, edema and transfusion, there should be no chapter on the various anemias. One is also struck by
