While the reviewer is not familiar with earlier editions of this manual, it is obviously designed for a school of nursing. As such it appears to be admirably developed. According to the preface, some valuable improvements have been made. The general plan is one of integration of anatomy with physiology. For example, unit 1 is devoted to the body as an integrated whole, and in this is an introduction to anatomy together with some simpler physiologic experiments. Unit 2 deals with the erect and moving body and is similarly integrated. The illustrations include line diagrams, schematic diagrams, drawings and structures that the student must identify by labeling a roentgenogram of an erect human subject, colored schematic drawings of muscles, reproductions of simpler kymographic tracings and three full pages of photographs of laboratory equipment with sentence descriptions of each. There is also a table of more than forty teaching films, listed
