Twenty-three writers contribute to this volume of the comprehensive series constituting the Handbook of Normal and Pathologic Physiology appearing (in seventeen volumes) under the combined editorship of Bethe, Embden, Bergmann and Ellinger. In a review of the first volume that appeared in The Journal, March 13, 1926, p. 803, the general scope of the enterprise was outlined. The present volume deals exhaustively with the various types of movements and contractility observed in plants and animals. The first 107 pages deal essentially with protoplasmic movements, ciliary motion, growth movements in plants, and contractile organs of plants. The remainder of the book describes all possible phases of muscle physiology (histology, physical chemistry, mechanical properties, tonus, contracture and rigor, influence of inorganic ions on muscular activity, chemistry of muscular contraction, respiration of muscle, thermodynamics of muscle, and theory of muscular contraction). One chapter is devoted to the pharmacology of muscular contraction. The last
