This book concerns the physiology of cutaneous circulation. One author is a physiologist and the other is a biologist. The book is aimed at the clinician or at a biologist, but we have the impression that it would be useful mainly to a resident in dermatology who is studying his basic sciences, a teacher, or a researcher who is interested in the field.

We were surprised not to find recent electron microscopic data in the chapter dealing with functional anatomy of cutaneous circulation.

Of course, the main emphasis is on physiology and most of the chapters concern the various functional aspects of the question. The subject is treated in great detail and very clearly. The bibliography is extensive. As in any physiology book, the reader is confronted with mathematical formula curves and measurements. At the end there is a welcome chapter on the cutaneous circulation in various states of health
