"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
Bioelectricity is conceived as a science studying the effects of external electromagnetic fields upon living organisms and the electromagnetic fields generated by organisms.
Life processes are linked inseparably with electrical phenomena, but those links are so manifold that many items are subject to special disciplines. This book comprises 27 articles written by 46 authors from the most different fields of engineering, physics, biology, and medicine and thus reflects the whole spectrum of bioelectrical studies.
The articles are divided into 6 parts. The overview (I) was writtenby R.O. Becker. Part II deals with the perception of the magnetic field of the earth, with NMR conditions and electropotentials in plants. This part was meant to demonstrate the biological significance of electromagnetic fields which, to my mind, is not such a good choice. Part III is dedicated to electrical properties of tissue and thus provides the basis for understanding the following articles. Part IV provides a survey of the biological effects of electromagnetic energy. Parts V and VI detail therapeutic applications and health hazards of electromagnetic energy.
Modem Bioelectricity is not a textbook. It presents a collection of contributions by many specialists on their relatively narrow fields of work, which, owing to the selection and arrangement of the papers, represent a scientific discipline. A clear delimitation against pseudo-scientific speculation is undertaken as well as against the minimizing of affirmed biological risks. Up-to-date results and current trends are presented in a way which is neither superficial nor requires too much special knowledge. The detailed references facilitate access to further reading.
However, the advantages of this kind of book are linked inseparably with some disadvantages: the choice of contributions and the definition of the subject matter is sometimes arbitrary. Many works I consider to be important do not even appear in the references. Some connections between the presented topics remain unclear since nearly no overlapping reviews are included.
All together, this book provides quite a good overview of the field of bioelectricity. It is recommended to those in whose work the interaction between organisms and electromagnetic fields is of importance and who want to learn about the possible effects and their mechanism. At the same time the book is a suitable introduction for advanced undergraduate or postgraduate students of biology, medicine, and electrical engineering taking a special interest in this fascinating subject. -- R.W.GLASER, Berlin
