This book edited by Goldin and Hawking has fifteen contributors. Doctor Frank Hawking of the National Institute for Medical Research at Mill Hill, London, England, has just completed in association with Doctor R. J. Schnitzer a three-volume series on Experimental Chemotherapy also published by Academic Press. (See Am. J. Trop. Med. & Hyg., 834; 903; 179.) The contributors to these volumes are different and in many respects the contents are quite different. This volume, as the title indicates, is concerned with recent advances in chemotherapy. Among the subjects discussed are: Quantitative Concepts in the Clinical Study of Drugs, Mechanism of Action of Phenanthridine and Aminoquinaldine Trypanocides, Chemoprophylaxis and Chemotherapy of Viral Diseases, The Vinca Alkaloids, Cell Culture and Cancer Chemotherapy, and Immuno-reactions in Antiparasitic Chemotherapy. The papers are well written and are supported by good bibliographies.The book should be useful not only to those engaged in research in chemotherapy but also to microbiologists in general and even more to those who are unable to follow closely the rapidly developing literature on chemotherapy.
