Since iodine metabolism affords useful information in the study of endocrine problems, this monograph will be of interest to surgeons, physiologists, pharmacologists, biochemists, and experts in nutrition. The subject matter has been presented under the following headings: I. Iodine Balance and Endocrine Balance; II. Iodine Stores in Body Tissues; III. Iodine Compounds of Biological Importance; IV. Circulating Iodine; V. Thyroid Activity; VI. Endocrine Balance; VII. Iodine and the Pituitary-Ovarian Axis; VIII. Neurological Influence; IX. Iodine Balance; X. Radioactive Iodine; XI. Clinical Problems; XII. Appendix for Laboratory Workers.

Many recent developments have been incorporated, among which are the following: radioactive iodine in man and animals; radioiodine and the new element No. 85 in studies of nutrition and goiter; the beneficial effect of iodized albumin in human myxedema; new blood iodine fractions (P, T, D, and I) in clinical thyroid disease; and the latest reports on the chemical properties of thyroglobulin. The Appendix contains in convenient form a series of tried analytical procedures which have been adapted to everyday problems.

Schulz and Sushma Raman, whose new book, The Coming Good Society: Why New Realities Demand New Rights, came out just as Black Lives Matter protesters filled the streets this summer. We spoke with them about the current view—and the future—of human rights. How do you understand the purpose of rights? What function do they serve in a society?
