The present volume [Volume 50] is a particularly rewarding one with thirteen reviews covering almost every aspect of current alkaloid research...The natural polyamines more usually figure in biochemistry tests, so it is particularly good to see a review of these relatively simple molecules from more chemical point of view.

This fiftieth volume of the long running series familiarity known as "Manske" continues the tradition of comprehensive excellence initiated by its founding editor, the late R.H.
