The present volume of the annual reviews of biochemistry maintains the high standards set by its predecessors. Well indexed, it is an exceedingly useful means of locating information recently published in this field, and the mode of treatment has the advantage that each item is critically evaluated and oriented with respect to other items. The twenty-one reviews deal with biologic oxidations and reductions, nonoxidative enzymes, plant carbohydrates, the chemistry of the lipids, the chemistry of the proteins and amino acids, the chemistry of the steroids, carbohydrate metabolism, fat metabolism, the metabolism of proteins and amino acids, the vitamins, the chemistry of the hormones, the biochemistry of teeth, growth factors for micro-organisms, photosynthesis, the respiration of plants, the biochemistry of yeast, bacterial metabolism, immunochemistry, organic insecticides, the viruses and inactivation and detoxication of pressor amines. The excellent quality of this book adds to the significance of the opening tribute on page
