material which became available. The
book is divided into two parts: text and
illustrations. The text gives brief descriptions and other pertinent rnaterial such as
statistics or variations.
The atlas is as valuable in this country
and Latin America as in Germany because
the legends are given in the German, English, and Spanish languages. In addition
to the usual illustrations of bones, muscles, and viscera, there are many unusual
views of dissections, frozen sections,
and semidiagrammatic interpretations in
which color is employed liberally and effectively. The embryology, endocrinology,
and central nervous system associations
are briefly considered.

BLOOD FLOW IN ARTERIES. By Donald A. McDonald. x 328 pages, illustrated. $8.50. The Williams & Wilkins Company, Baltimore. 1960.
The author is “Reader in Physiology in
the University of London at the Medical
College of St. Bartholomew’s Hospital.”
He gives generous praise for assistance in
mathematical treatment to John Ronald
Womersley and Michael Taylor.
The book attempts to outline in a simple
way the analysis of the circulation as a
system in a steady-state oscillation, based
on standard principles of hydrodynamics.
Some mathematics is necessary for the
expression of these principles, and although the author states that this has been
kept to a minimum, a genuine attempt
has been made to approach the accuracy
of mathematical treatment as it is commonly applied in Physics.
The author is one of the pioneers in the
use of the electron microscope for biological research and has made important contributions to the techniques of ultra-thin
sectioning of tissues for study. He has
also made fundamental contributions to
our knowledge of cytological structure. It
is his belief that no one aspect is particularly difficult, but does state: “To make
successful electron micrographs of tissues
one must preserve the specimens with
skill, section them with art, use an electron microscope with understanding, and
do photography with facility.
It is a practical book and takes the
beginner through all the steps: Organization of the Laboratory, Tissue Exposure,
Fixation, Embedding, Sectioning, Section
mounting, Microscopy, Photography, and
Alternate Methods of Specimen Preparation. Special points are illustrated by
photographs and many original electron
micrographs show the result of improper
and proper techniques. There are bibliographies with each chapter, two appendices
which give sources of bibliographic information and of equipment arid materials,
and an index.

The 7 chapters are contributions to
a symposium held as a tribute to Dr. Selman A. Waksman on his 70th birthday
at the Institute of Microbiology at Rutgers
on its 4th anniversary. Chapter 1, Microbial Biochemistry and its Development
by J. H. Quastel, is a well documented
history and survey which displays to advantage the remarkable advances in biochemistry in general as well as its applications in microbiology. In chapter 2, H. B.
Woodruff discusses antibiotics as a new
field for Research and Perspectives. In
chapter 3, Michael Heidelberger writes
entertainingly about Episodes in his pursuit of Immunochemistry. In chapter 4,
Bacterial Classification, Problems and Developments, we meet a taxonomist with
unusual insight. He writes “Taxonomy is
essentially subjective, and, because it is
practiced as an art, the best taxonomists
are the greatest artists,” and “this is cataloguing or enumeration and will not lead
us far down the scientific path; - - - like
