The 50th anniversary of the Aerospace Medical Association is commemorated by a chronicle of the development of this specialty and the successful integration of medicine, physical science, and technology. The authors are experienced science writers and provide clear and nontechnical explanations of the often complex physical and technical principles and problems with which aerospace medicine must deal. The initial chapters on the early recognition of the physiologic effects of high altitude and high g forces are particularly lucid and interesting. The account of more recent events in space medicine is burdened by a large amount of trivia but is comprehensive
