This little monograph, dedicated to Friedrich von Müller, is a good analytic summary of our present knowledge of the mechanisms of the hunger and appetite "drives" and their modifications in disease, with special reference to the adequacy of mass dietaries and racial dietary habits. The point is made, and properly, in the concluding pages, that the inherited urges of hunger and appetite may be so modified by experience and social habits that they become inadequate biologic guides, in both the quality and the quantity of food consumption.
