This is the second volume of Professor Catel's thorough work on the motility of the digestive tract. The present instalment is in two parts; the first takes up clinical pathology under such heads as the pathology of swallowing, esophageal spasms and dilatations, pyloric spasms, dilatation of the stomach and so on down the digestive tract. The last section is on pharmacology and deals with the influence of the various common drugs in this domain. The book is handsomely printed, with many excellent illustrations and diagrams as well as an extensive bibliography.
