Dr. Abramson has written a monograph to present in a single volume a synthesis of all the pertinent data on the physiologic responses of blood vessels in the extremities. He has gathered together from widely scattered sources most of the important works dealing with the peripheral vascular system of the extremities and has reduced the contents of these works to their common physiologic basis.

The data presented are grouped under seven headings: (1) general anatomy and physiology of the circulation in the extremities; (2) methods applicable to the study of the peripheral circulation; (3) responses of the blood vessels to various physiologic conditions; (4) responses to various pharmacologic agents; (5) abnormalities in the circulation in systemic diseases; (6) peripheral vascular diseases, and (7) therapeutic measures. In each of these categories, Dr. Abramson strives to point out the fundamental physiologic pattern; that is, all of the data
