This book will interest anatomists, physiologists and pharmacologists who may be engaged in research on the autonomic nervous system. It is neither introductory nor exhaustive but a presentation of modern concepts. Part I summarizes the neuroanatomy in 65 pages and part II the physiology in 142 pages. The remaining six parts deal, respectively, with the experimental medicine of the autonomic system, the applications to topographic neurodiagnosis, anatomicophysiologic considerations in autonomic disorders, contributions of experimental medicine to the pathology of autonomic disorders, the etiology and the therapy of autonomic disorders. The illustrations include some good diagrams and a wealth of photomicrographs. There is a bibliography of about 600 references, a table of contents and an index. While the book is not of much immediate use to the practicing physician, it should prove valuable as a reference work in several fields of research.
