Detailed Product Description
Pennsylvania, 1981, 1st edition, 5th printing. 462 pp, b/w photos and illustrations. Hardcover, no dust jacket was issued. Fine.

From the Benchmark Papers in Human Physiology Vol. 15. From the foreword by L.L. Langley: "The reaction of man and other animals to high altitude have fascinated investigators for centuries. Much is now known, due to the pioneering efforts of those quoted in this volume, but many problems remain to be solved. Among them may be listed the endocrine alterations evoked by high altitude, pulmonary edema, acute mountain sickness, and retinal hemorrhage. These problems have attracted physiologists to the low pressure chamber and the more adventurous to the high and foreboding mountains. John West is a pioneer in the true sense of that word. He is a superb physiologist and a seasoned mountaineer. No one is better qualified to edit this fascinating volume."

The articles collected, reproduced and edited here represent research at its most exciting.
