The contents of this volume are of specialized physiological interest, dealing about equally and comprehensively with the whole series of cardiovascular reflexes (carotid sinus, chemoreceptor, aortic, coronary, atrial, ventricular, pulmonary, extravagal) that control the circulation and with the physical functional properties of blood vessels, as illustrated in pressure volume experiments on venous systems. The first chapter, however, describes vascular responses, including shock in wounded men in the Korean war.

The presentation is in the usual Macy Conference style, with numerous and interesting interpolations by the participants from this country and abroad. Louis Leiter, M.D.
