/ 7 It is eleven years since the first edition of this book was published and six years since the second edition. There have been many advances in renal physiology over these years, a fact demonstrated by a comparison of the index of this new edition with that of 11 years ago. For example, words in the index of this edition which do not appear in the first edition include atrial natriuretic peptide, dopamine, erythropoietin, nitric oxide and prorenin. For this new edition, there are many completely new sections, includ ing a new chapter on tubular transport mechanisms, a section on the bladder and micturition and sections on the renal handling of magne sium, renal function in pregnancy and age-related changes in function. The accounts of renin synthesis, the actions of atrial natriuretic peptide and the mechanisms of ammonia secretion, have been rewritten and updated. The presentation of the book for this third edition is also new. The majority of the figures have been redrawn and 'boxes' have been included to present additional material (particularly information of clinical relevance), which can be read separately from the main text. The most popular features of the book - notably its cOllciseness and logical progression through renal physiology - have been retained.

The strengths of this popular text - its conciseness and logical progression through renal physiology - are retained in this third edition. The text has been updated throughout, and clinical and pathophysiological information has been increased. The book is clearly illustrated with many line diagrams and provides a valuable synthesis of renal function for undergraduate students in many disciplines.Review:
about a previous edition:
`This is a well written, compact physiology text on the functions of the kidney ... The author has carefully selected the relevant topics and and provided the student with an up-to-date and well-balanced analysis of basic functions of the nephron, as well as a concise survey of the major regulatory mechanisms of salt and water homeostasis ... The book is lucidly written and well-illustrated and should serve as a valuable introductory text for physiology students.'
Quarterly Journal of Experimental Physiology
`The students of physiology at the University of Birmingham Medical School ... are very lucky if their class teaching is as good as this paperback.'
British Book News
`Presents clearly and concisely the principles of renal physiology at a level eminently suitable to the needs of the preclinical medical student ... confidently recommended.'
New Zeland Medical Journal
