This is a comprehensive evaluation of human circulation from clinical and experimental aspects. Discussion opens with vasoactive hormones and continues with vasoactive drugs, adrenergic agents, metabolites, and neural control of the peripheral circulation. Data is well presented and painstakingly documented. Historical evolution is reviewed in great depth. Of over 500 references cited, nine are from 1965, and five are from 1966.
