Skin Pharmacology and Toxicology is another volume in the NATO Advanced Science Institutes Series. Thus, it serves as the published proceedings of a 1989 conference held in Riva del Garda, Italy. The editors have attempted to review, in detail, major areas of interest for scientists working in skin pharmacology and toxicology. Their emphasis is on the basic principles relating to how drugs may influence the skin or the body as a whole. Twenty-six authors, who are primarily European, have contributed to the text, which has been divided into 22 chapters. Each chapter has been printed in different type, and some of the dot-matrix print is extremely difficult to read.
