BOOK REVIEWSPrinciples of Human Physiology
STARLING and LOVATT EvANs. 13th edition.Edited by HUGH DAVSON, D.SC., and GRACEEGGLETON, D.SC., M.R.C.S. Pp. xvi + 1,579 pages,with 851 illustrations. London: J. A. Churchill.I962. IOOS.
Now in its soth year and 13th edition, the OldGentleman of Gower Street makes a welcome reappear-ance, almost completely rewritten and yet still lookinglike its revered predecessors. Changes there have been-what one or two authors did in the past now has to bedone by i i contributors under a double editorship.All contributors are, or have been, senior workers atUniversity College and this has probably contributed tothe uniformity of presentation. It can still be lookedon as the U.C.L. textbook.
Although carrying ' human ' in its title, the 1,500 pagespacked solid with fact presents the academic approachto physiology and is concerned with the principles ratherthan the application. The appeal therefore will be to thestudent approaching physiology as a basic science and
this edition will undoubtedly retain its place as a fore-most British source. Well printed and produced, thisbulky work represents good value in the higher pricerange of textbooks. The short lists of chosen referencesat the end of each chapter ' for further reading ' is auseful guide to summarizing literature and the briefhistorical surveys fill a gap in most textbooks. It itnoticeable that the sub-heading within chapters hasincreased over the years. In this edition every one or twoparagraphs now has a heavy type heading. This makesfor easy reference, but to this reviewer it reduces thepleasure of the reading and disturbs the continuity ofthe story. Random dipping into the text confirms thatthe text is up to date and tests of the index did not fail.Any reader will have his own ideas as to the adequacy
of the presentation and his own concept of his owntextbook (which he will never write). It will be difficultto fault this text except on the score that the studentmay fail to see the relation between the described func-tions of the portions of the systems, but to do that inthe end needs experience as well as reading.
