Marcus and Zucker have defined the objective of this book as supplementing and up-dating the previous comprehensive reviews on blood platelets by Tocantins in 1938 and Johnson, Rebuck, and Horn in 1960. They have attempted to avoid being redundant where these and other reviews have adequately covered the subject material and to be supplemental in areas that have developed in the last 5 years. A good example of the latter is the relationship of adenosine diphosphate to platelet aggregation. Subject material covered includes platelet biochemistry, platelet coagulation factors, aggregation and "viscous metamorphosis," thrombopoesis, and platelet survival. Short but searching discussions
