Volume 6 in the series Advances in Biology of the Skin is a thorough presentation of the cutaneous changes that accompany aging. The 273-page book contains the proceedings of a symposium held at the University of Oregon Medical School in 1964 and is edited by the host, William Montagna, PhD.
The symposium is presented in 17 chapters and represents the work of 26 investigators. Most of the book is devoted to fundamental aspects of the biochemistry, physiology, and anatomy of aging skin and its appendages. Certain chapters contain new, unreported investigative studies as well as reviews of noteworthy, previously published information. Most chapters are concerned more with fact than philosophy and more with basic science than therapy. Differences between aged and actinically damaged skin are clearly defined.
The book is well written and most chapters can be easily read and understood. In summary, it meets the high standard of excellence
