During recent years great progress has been made in the field of the structural chemistry of proteins through the application of a number of techniques. These techniques are so different in nature that it is hard to find someone who is able to discuss all of them in a thoroughly competent way. Professor Springall, an organic chemist who has been interested in physical chemistry and modern structural chemistry as well as organic chemistry, and who has himself carried out investigations in the field of the determination of molecular structures by diffraction methods, is admirably suited to the task of writing a succinct, reasonably detailed, and up-to-date account of proteins, including their chemical composition, chemical properties, physico-chemical properties, and molecular structure. His book can be recommended both as a textbook and as a reference book.
