An excellent summation is given in this volume of the available experimental work concerned with the pathogenesis of hypertension. Under nine separate headings the principal investigators in this field present the results of their laboratory investigations. This material is discussed in turn by all present. It would take hours of thumbing through indexes to dig out for oneself the information presented in these 170 pages, and the facts given are pertinent and complete. No attempt is made to consolidate the data into a single theory of the origin of hypertension. This is an excellent monograph.
