This monograph fulfills a definite need, for the last comparable work on the biochemistry of amino acids was published in 1929. Although the scope of the book is limited to 10 constituents of proteins, to metabolism proper, and to mammals, almost 1,200 references are cited, most of them not more than 15 years old and many published in 1951 and 1952. In addition, Dr. Bach is thoroughly familiar with the field and has the gift of being able to make it interesting to others. The author and subject indexes are comprehensive, and the printing and binding are excellent. This monograph is recommended for graduate students, research workers, and teachers of biochemistry and physiology.
