This is an uneven volume containing clinical, histopathologic, and laboratory experimentation results reported at the Melanoma Conference in Sydney, Australia. Some of the papers have been omitted. In general, the book has been reproduced very well. The electron micrographs are well reproduced. I believe it would have been profitable to leave out the studies on clinical subjects, such as melanoma and the histopathologic findings of childhood nevi, and produce a basic science monograph on melanin pigmentation. However, in international conferences, one always finds papers that do not fit into a given format and probably need to be included. This is a marginal volume, for in most instances, the data contained in it are presented elsewhere. I believe only workers in the field of melanin and melanoma will want to acquire the proceedings of this conference.
