This large manual treats therapeutics comprehensively. It should serve as an excellent textbook for students and general practitioners to amplify the treatment stated in the books on general medicine. The fourth edition is entirely rewritten and contains a splendid chapter on penicillin therapy. Various newer drugs, including thiouracil, are carefully evaluated. Emphasis is given to general management rather than to a mere enumeration of drugs. This should serve as a basis for rational and critical judgment of all therapeutic.agents. Included are sections on the treatment of venereal and skin diseases, tropical medicine and an excellent chapter on psychosomatic medicine.
