Scholarcy highlights

  • A book reviewer is generally allowed considerable latitude in the expression of his opinions
  • Among the virtues of the book are the introduction to the rest of us of so many eastern European scientists and their work
  • The review by Mikes of the evolution of proteolytic enzymes was outstanding and comprehensive and one must hope that it is not lost to its appropriate audience by virtue of its being published in a book that may not be as widely available as journal and annual review type periodicals
  • Sidney Fox gives a good presentation of his views altbough they are available elsewhere
  • Larry Fox gives an analysis of flavodoxin evolution that does not extrapolate too far beyond the facts and considers various alternative views, a moderation not characteristic of other authors
  • The dominant feeling I have of the book is, of an unevenness far greater than is common to such a book
  • A major value of the book is showing the importance of agricultural research in spurring more general interest in the problems of reproductive biology
