In the second edition of this book the editors have omitted many of the previous subjects, which were particularly of military interest, and have added sections on cerebral angiography, electrolyte and water balance, cortisone and corticotropin, hypersplenism, toxoplasmosis, electrocardiography, parkinsonism, and the newer antibiotics. In discussing the many aspects and problems of internal medicine no attempt is made to cover complete systems. The material covered should be of general interest to the specialist in internal medicine as well as to the general practitioner or medical student who is at the intern or residency level. The subjects are as well covered as can be expected in a book of this size. There are 43 good illustrations. The style of writing is generally good, and the simplicity of most of the articles makes the volume extremely readable. On the whole, the book can be recommended.
