KIRKUS REVIEW

A history of the accumulation of knowledge about blood, which traces the dividends paid off in medicine, surgery, etc., as discoveries and research revealed more and more information. Following the facts of transfusion, plasma, and blood derivatives, this continues with the functions of elements in the blood; it takes up the immunities, the groups and factors, the chemistry, of blood; it discusses blood as a regulator, as a purifier, and in allergies; it describes the diseases of the blood. Throughout are the individual investigations that added to the growing sum of knowledge, the men who worked the problems to their solution; there is also speculation as to how much more can be learned and what direction it will give to scientific application. For the medically minded who want a whole book on one subject, this should provide sufficient coverage.
