This book has been prepared by a number of specialists discussing the phases of their fields that are related to clinical obstetrics.

The management of the newborn in the neonatal period is well covered, and the discussion on the relation of roentgenology to the practice of obstetrics is well done and profusely illustrated. Anesthesia, both local and general, is described with possibly too much emphasis on spinal anesthesia for the teaching of undergraduate students. There are sections on sterility and fertility in both men and women and the influence of diet on pregnancy and the puerperium.

The book is well illustrated, and the type is clear and well spaced. It should be an excellent book for undergraduates beginning the study of obstetrics, postgraduates at the intern and residency level, and general practitioners who have obstetric problems.
