Rose's 1977 book, Clinical Physiology of Acid Base and Electrolyte Disorders, dealt with the renal regulation of electrolyte and acid-base hemeostasis, and the clinical disorders resulting from impairment of these systems. This new, companion book includes 13 chapters dealing with the assessment of renal function; acute and chronic renal failure; vascular, tubulointerstitial, and obstructive disease; urinary tract infections; hypertension; nephrolithiasis; and drug metabolism. Together the two books constitute a textbook of nephrology.
The author has succeeded in his goal of providing a core of information suitable for students, house officers, and practicing non-nephrologists. The discussions are basic and are organized
