Sixteen collaborators in the United States and Netherlands have joined to make this the most detailed and inclusive volume in the English language dealing with the proteins. It stands as a worthy successor to the obsolete monograph of Brailsford Robertson and to Jacques Loeb's brilliant but sharply delimited work. Dealing as it does with every phase of protein chemistry, it will be welcomed as a working tool by biochemists, immunologists and many organic chemists. Practitioners of medicine, unless unusually conversant with the language of physical chemistry, will find the body of the book too difficult to read; the last two chapters, dealing with applications to immunity and nutrition, can be read with interest and profit by any physician.
