This volume provides an easy access to a review of the complex literature of kinin physiology. Like most multi-author books, the quality is variable. Some chapters are little more than an encyclopedic compilation of the literature. In other chapters, an attempt has been made to evaluate the investigations cited, with a critical eye.
This volume will be of interest to libraries of medical schools and departments of pharmacology, physiology, biochemistry, and other investigative branches of medicine. The cost of $68.20 will make private purchase prohibitive for all except those who have keen interest in the area.
