This book is a welcome and much needed addition to a field that is far from overcrowded. It is well organized and remarkably comprehensive for a work of this kind. The division of material into two volumes follows the generally accepted method of placing the basic sciences connected with urology and lesions of the lower part of the urinary tract in one volume, and lesions of the kidneys and ureters and surgical urology in a second. The author has made an excellent attempt to present up-to-date concepts of diagnosis and therapy and avoid hackneyed discussions of time-worn subjects.

Volume I contains a well written section on embryology and anatomy of the genitourinary tract. A section on laboratory methods by Dr. Israel Davidsohn is especially well written and valuable in a book of this kind. It contains practically all the laboratory data that any urologist would require in routine practice. Chemotherapy
