In accepting the responsibility for this review the difficulty of the task was not fully appreciated. At first it appeared that to indicate the nature of the research in a few pages would be sufficient. But the enormous amount of material presented, the numerous and important tests described, the changing symptoms in the same animal following the different operations were all so significant that a brief summary was clearly impossible.
An attempt has therefore been made to present the salient facts of each chapter. The German technical terms for the different reactions which have been retained for convenience and brevity will be found fully described. If errors exist, the reviewer pleads the difficulty of the text.
The monograph is of extraordinary interest, and should be familiar to all who are concerned with these problems.
