The past two decades have witnessed a revival of interest in the biological importance of cholanic acid and its derivatives. Up to that time a sizeable literature on the chemistry of these compounds had evolved. The renewed interest of biologists has stimulated a much greater understanding of bile salt chemistry and has made the field more complicated for the biological researcher. Volume 1 of "The Bile Acids" attempts to present information on the chemistry of bile acids in a form useful to the chemist and accessible to the biologist. Although only eight subjects are chosen for review, the editors have
