This volume provides an easy access to a review of the complex literature of kinin physiology. Like most multiauthor books, the quality is variable. Some chapters are little more than encyclopedic compilations of the literature; other chapters attempt to evaluate the investigations cited with a critical eye.
This volume will be of interest to the 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 great interest in the area.
