This book represents a cooperative effort by several authors and discusses neurovegetative regulation. It is part of a comprehensive series of handbooks of general pathology. The main title of this series is somewhat misleading because the bulk of the present volume is devoted to anatomy and physiology of the autonomic nervous system. Pathology is discussed in a relatively small section which is almost an exact replica of a similar contribution by the same author in the Handbuch der Speciellen Pathologischen Anatomie und Histologie, vol 13, pt 5, Springer (1953). Few modifications have been made to this section apart from the addition of some electron micrographs and diagrams illustrating the ultrastructure of peripheral autonomic fibers.
The rest of the book is an excellent compilation of knowledge about autonomic physiology. Sections dealing with autonomic pharmacology, endocrinology, and electrical phenomena in smooth muscle are included. All vegetative functions are discussed at length, but
