Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'This book will be of immediate interest to bioengineers. Strict editorial control over the individual contributions has resulted in a well presented book. The tutorial nature of some of the contributions will also appeal to other areas. Each article is well referenced and the index allows the ready location of specific topics of interest. The reviewer has no hesitation in recommending this book to anyone who is even remotely interested in biomaterials or bioengineering.' Journal of the Australian Ceramic Society, 23:1 (1987)
