Since the organization, in 1947, of the Section on Microbiology of the New York Academy of Medicine, important contributions to modern medical literature have been made by that group. This, the third volume of a series of published symposia on bacterial, fungus and viral diseases, represents 14 papers presented on this subject. Many phases of the study of viruses are included. Dissemination of viruses, their relation to tissue cells, the lesions produced by several viruses and the pathological changes inherent therein are among the subjects presented. The bibliography supplied for each chapter enhances the value of the volume, and the book is recommended to those interested in the advances in virology.
