This book capably reviews selected advances and modern concepts in gastroenterology. The initial 16 chapters are grouped into four sections on the gastrointestinal mucosa, gastric and pancreatic secretions, alimentary motility, and absorption and bacterial flora. The remaining 12 chapters (45% of the text) deal concisely with wide ranging clinical topics such as multiple endocrine adenomas, primary and secondary disaccharidase deficiencies, celiac disease, special problems of pediatric gastroenterology, and the role of the intensive-care unit in clinical gastroenterology.

There are 53 contributors from seven countries and most are acknowledged authorities in their respective areas. The format is similar for each chapter, from an opening table of contents to a concluding statement of the shortcomings of available information and projections for the future. The presentations for the most part are well written and carefully edited. Referencing is extensive and up to date, there is a 17-page index, and the text is supplemented
