The study of the reactions and properties of amino acids and proteins is finding wide and fruitful application in medicine as well as in practically all branches of biology and even in industry. For this reason any book which attempts to give the reader a clear and accurate pricture of the present state of our knowledge of these substances is valuable. The purpose of this book is to "outline in a simple and readable manner the essentials of the chemistry and biochemistry of amino acids and proteins." It contains twelve chapters, which cover the whole field of protein chemistry from the discovery of the amino acids to protein structure, methods of analysis for amino acids and proteins, metabolism of amino acids and proteins, and amino acids and proteins in nutrition. There is also an appendix listing United States patents issued on amino acids and related organic compounds. Each chapter was
