Dr. Soffer and his collaborators have expanded his excellent monograph, Diseases of the Adrenals, into a textbook of endocrinology. In general, the result is a well documented volume, a sound and authentic compilation of the pertinent literature and of the authors' investigations. The discussions of the physiology of the endocrine glands, and of the pathogenesis of the various disease states resulting from their dysfunctions, are thorough and up-to-date. The clinical descriptions are good. On the whole, therapy is adequately covered. A chapter on laboratory tests of endocrine function is appended. Unfortunately, no introductory chapter of orientation in the broad field
