In the preface, Dr. Lang claims that this is the only recent monograph in German on intermediary metabolism. In consideration of this fact, he treats both biochemical and physiological aspects of the intermediary metabolism of higher animals, is particularly careful with his nomenclature and style, includes quantitative data where possible, covers the literature with unusual thoroughness, and includes extensive indexes. This treatment will allow the work to be used both as a textbook and as a reference work. The 20 pages of literature citations will appeal to English-speaking biochemists and physiologists, since several recent monographs in English are listed. Dr. Lang states that his references are complete through June 1, 1952. American and British publications are cited as often as continental works. Wherever possible the older literature is disposed of by citation of reviews, so that the reader interested in pursuing a point will be able to find the most
