Professor Evans' recent revision of Starling's Physiology maintains, we believe, in every respect the high standards of the University College group. The tendency naturally is to stress the principles of general physiology, but the wider philosophy of the subject is so admirably blended with the special aspects of human physiology that whether the reader be biologist or medical student his needs are adequately served. Recent points of view receive thorough discussion, and the entire book bears evidence of critique and authoritative analysis. The format is attractive; the illustrations are good, and the references—mostly dealing with comprehensive articles—are carefully selected.
