This volume is devoted solely to the deliberations of the International Symposium on Psoriasis which was held in June of 1971. It is remarkable that the papers given by an outstanding group of international experts could be published by December 1971. In it one can find almost everything currently known about psoriasis; yet as the dedication states, "To those who wait with hope for discoveries that will lessen their sufferings from psoriasis," we must know more and undoubtedly will as years pass by. Drs. Farber and Cox are congratulated strongly for their willingness and ability to undertake the development and ultimate fruition of this great meeting.
The 460 pages of text are written by more than 75 authors and comprise 51 chapters divided as follows: 20 chapters dealing with the clinical manifestations of psoriasis, 15 with biological approaches and 16 with therapy and complications. Unfortunately, no subject index is offered,
