Abstract

This volume can be best described as an advanced textbook of cellular physiology and biology, with chapters written by 21 authorities from Great Britain and America. The manuscripts are generously documented and illustrated with figures and electron micrographs; references are current. To appreciate this work, the reader should have a broad background in biochemistry, histology, and biology.

The material is well organized into six sections. Part 1 deals with the dynamics of cell membranes; it considers their chemical composition, molecular structure, and various functions of all cell membranes, internal as well as external. The chapter on membrane transport by P. F. Baker would be perhaps the most useful to the medical student, as it deals lucidly with electrolyte transport and conditions that can modify permeability and movement of charged particles.

Part 2 is the largest section, with chapters on the organization of cellular function. The four components dealt with specifically
