520    This timely volume provides a comprehensive overview of 
       glucocorticoids and their role in regulating many aspects 
       of physiology and their use in the treatment of disease. 
       The book is broken into four sections that begin by giving
       a general introduction to glucocorticoids and a brief 
       history of the field. The second section will discuss the 
       effects of glucocorticoids on metabolism, while the third 
       section will cover the effects of glucocorticoids on key 
       tissues. The final section will discuss general topics, 
       such as animal models in glucocorticoid research and 
       clinical implications of glucocorticoid research. 
       Featuring chapters from leaders in the field, this volume 
       will be of interest to both researchers and clinicians.
