The author is known from his earlier books (Surgical Pathology, Pathology of Internal Diseases), which have been received with favor. The present book may be regarded as a consolidation with careful revision and expansion of the two earlier books, which to a large extent survey the same general field from different angles and unavoidably duplicate each other on practically all points of fundamental importance. In the preface the author states that the book "is intended for the student of pathology, whether undergraduate or postgraduate," and to serve as an introduction to the study of medicine. To make this introduction real and effective, special emphasis is placed on explaining the relationships between structural lesions and clinical manifestations.

The part on general pathology, which occupies approximately one third (333 pages)
