This review of the year's literature on therapeutics, preventive medicine and climatology shows the increasing prominence given to measures aside from chemical or botanical drugs. While it is true that new drugs are constantly being produced and new applications and uses of old ones made, as shown in this volume, yet one is impressed with the large amount of study that seems to be given to hydrotherapy, internal and external, electricity, hyperemia, mechanotherapy, light, radium, vaccine and serumtherapy, and even psychotherapy. Preventive medicine occupies a constantly growing prominence in present-day medicine. The literature of the three subjects included in this volume of the "Practical Medicine Series" is well covered and can not fail to prove of value in keeping physicians abreast of therapeutic progress during the year.
