Biochemistry: The Molecular Basis of Life, International Fifth Edition is an intermediate, one-semester text written for students on degree pathways in Chemistry, Biology and other Health and Life Sciences. Aimed at students with one unit of Organic Chemistry, it focuses on essential biochemical principles that underpin the modern life sciences, and offers the most balanced coverage of chemistry and biology of any text on the market. The text equips students with a complete view of the living state, emphasizes problem solving, and applies biochemical principles to the fields of Health, Agriculture, Engineering and Forensics, to show students the relevance of their learning.

The text provides a complete view of the living state by explaining the functional and structural properties of biomolecules in the context of their biochemical reactions and impact on living organisms. It also places strong emphasis on critical thinking to help students diagnose real biochemical problems, and integrates fascinating applications of Biochemistry to the fields of Health, Agriculture, Engineering and Forensics in order to relate concept to experience and show students the relevance of their learning.

Review:

"The authors' emphasis on the integration of biochemical facts into a biological context is excellent. I welcome the increased depth of chemistry coverage emphasizing the most important reactions. I also welcome the increased connection between biochemistry and human biology. This edition is evolving beautifully. . . . From what I'veseen, I prefer the new McKee textbook to the book that I am currently using." --Christine A. Hrycyna, Purdue University"This text stands out because of its ability to relate human biology and disorders to the understanding of key biochemical concepts. My students appreciate the 'Biochemistry in Perspective' essays in each chapter. Once again McKee has done a fabulous job of providing clear illustrations. I feel the fifth edition has done very well in balancing both the chemical and biological concepts. The revisions will make this great textbook even better!" --Anjuli Datta, Pennsylvania State University"The emphasis on the integration of biochemical facts into a biological context to me is the most important goal. In this manner students can derive the connection between the facts and how they lead to elucidating the principle of the topic being introduced. I like the style: it begins with very simple down-to-earth discussion and gradually gets into the more complex and sophisticated aspects. The vignettes at the beginning of the chapters and the use of Thought Questions at the end are very appealing. The introduction and discussion of a disease directly related to the topic being discussed will stimulate students' interest."--Ralph A. Stephani, St. Johns University"I love the figures, the mechanistic details, and the summaries at the end of the chapters. I like that they are increasing the chemistry. I really like the format of the questions at the end of the chapter. They start out easy and build up in complexity. The Thought Questions push the students to look at the big picture. My students really like the B
