The work of Dr. Massey as completed gives a fair résumé of the teachings of the day in regard to the use of electricity in gynecology. It will be especially welcomed by those who limit the field of operative surgery in gynecologic cases, in some of which electricity sometimes exerts a wonderful influence. Heretofore the electricians have seemed to claim too much for their favorite agent. That it has a distinctly enlarging scope there is no doubt. The work under consideration is conservative and well written.
