This edifying little volume is designed as an introduction for the clinician to the realm of ocular electron microscopy and molecular biology. It achieves its purpose admirably and, in some respects, surpasses its original aim. The task is by no means simple. Due to limitations of space, the editor and each of the contributors has had to walk a fine line between the abstruse and the obvious, providing information that will simultaneously whet the appetite of the clinician reader for more definitive discussion while still embodying the subject matter.
The book is divided into three parts. The first, which deals with the basic and specialized techniques of transmission and scanning electron microscopy, sets the stage for the second part, which wonderfully condenses current information regarding the structure and function of the cell into one short chapter on cellular molecular biology. The reader comes away with a grasp of the
