The author of this volume is well known in hematology. The subjects of the eighteen chapters are origin and development of the cells of the blood in the embryo, infant and adult; the erythrocyte; the leukocytes; blood platelets; the blood as a whole; the principles and technic of blood examination; general considerations and treatment of anemia; pernicious anemia and related macrocytic anemias; normocytic anemias; hemolytic anemias; hypochromic microcytic (iron deficiency) anemia; anemia in infancy and childhood; polycythemia; the purpuras; hemophilia and other hemorrhagic disorders; leukemia; tumors and tumor-like conditions involving the blood forming organs; granulocytopenia and infectious mononucleosis. Each chapter is well written, is illustrated where indicated and contains a complete bibliography. It is difficult to choose one chapter which is far superior to the others, but most readers will probably give special attention to the sections on the purpuras, hemophilia, leukemia and granulocytopenia. These are current and popular topics
