This volume contains material on aspects of vitamins and hormones not dwelt on in volume I. The subjects considered include the role of vitamins in the anabolism of fats; the chemistry of biotin; the nutritional requirements of primates other than man; physiologic action of vitamin E and its homologues; the chemistry and physiology of vitamin A; para-aminobenzoic acid—experimental and clinical studies; critique of etiology of dental caries; vitamin and cancer; effect of androgens and estrogens on birds; hormones and cancer; x-ray crystallography, and sterol structure. There appears to be little rhyme or reason to the selection of topics. These volumes cannot serve as a reference source on the title subjects of vitamins and hormones because of the scattered coverage given thus far. The editors may feel that information is assembled here which is not found in other textbooks. This is actually true and is probably the objective of the work.
