This monograph represents a thesis, by the author, on his histologic studies of the normal and of the irradiated adrenals, in rabbits. It consists of eighty pages of text, fourteen pages of tables, seven plates and eleven pages of bibliography. The English translation from the original is good, although some transliteration, in places, may cause difficulty in reading if one is not familiar with languages other than English. The author reviews the literature on the normal physiology and histology of the adrenals and on experimental irradiation of the glands. His review of the literature on physiology is superficial and lacks critical interpretation; the other phases are well presented. He has emphasized the lack of control observations in the experimental work hitherto reported on irradiation; also failure to exclude seasonal variations in the cytologic inclusions of the adrenal cortex in relation to phenomena observed experimentally. Various other sources of experimental error
