In this monograph the author has succeeded in giving the reader a concise and excellent survey of present knowledge of the microscopic anatomy of the autonomic nervous system. For want of definite proof of its independence and in the light of his own researches he preferred to call it the vegetative nervous system, a term now often employed collectively for the sympathetic and parasympathetic systems and the vegetative nuclei in the brain stem. In this little volume he recapitulates many of his views and, in brief, all of the known morphologic features which are described at length in his more elaborate work: "Die mikroskopische Anatomie des vegetativen Nervensystems (Berlin, Julius Springer, 1928).
