This book, each chapter of which has been prepared by one or more recognized authorities, includes the best of most of the research that has been done in the field of biochemistry and physiology of bone during the past 25 years. Twenty-eight scientists have participated in writing it. The editor is widely known for his interest in this subject and has succeeded in producing a well-ordered arrangement of the material. There is an extensive bibliography and an author index as well as a subject index. This is a reference book rather than a textbook, and it should be of great value to every student or teacher who is interested in a better understanding of bone in health and disease.
