This little volume is intended only as a brief compendium of the facts in connection with legal medicine which every practicing physician ought to know. As such, and as a work for students, it is not exhaustive, but in the main it gives a very fair and reliable summary of the principal facts. A notable omission, however, is that of the biologic blood test, which certainly ought to be included in every work coming out in 1903. The part devoted to insanity is necessarily brief and hardly sufficiently complete for this day. Aside from these, and possible one or two other minor points, the book is one to be generally commended.
