Professor Caspersson shares with a small group of contemporary scientists the distinction of pioneering in histochemistry and cytochemistry. This book represents the fruit of nearly 20 years of study, collected as the Thomas W. Salmon Memorial Lectures for 1948. The book will be valuable chiefly as a reference point for workers in the field since it describes Caspersson's special and original technics, validates them and reports the results of their application to several problems. Others in medical and biologic fields will find the book valuable because it reports the study of the nucleoproteins of cytoplasm and nucleus in growth, in neoplasms and in virus diseases. The bibliography is restricted largely to the author's work.
The book might better have been called "Studies of the Nucleoproteins in Cell Growth and Cell Function" or even "Aspects of Cell Growth and Cell Function." Either of these titles would probably be too cumbersome, but
