In the same manner as they have revised Runge's well known textbook on obstetrics, these authors have undertaken a revision of the book on gynecology. The chapters on physiology of woman and diseases of woman have been entirely rewritten. In order to provide space without greatly enlarging the size of the book, the descriptions of certain obsolete operative methods have been discarded. The number of illustrations has also been somewhat increased, and more attention has been paid to the relations of gynecology to other aspects of medical science. In this volume, as in the textbook on obstetrics, the illustrations constitute one of the most important features. One of the most valuable sections of the work is that devoted to the effects of the glands of internal secretion. A special section is devoted to the use of physical therapy, including hydrotherapy, massage, exercise and electrotherapy.
