There has been a marked need for a volume of this type. The majority of general practitioners are not interested in operative gynecology but are intensely interested in office or medical gynecology, which constitutes a large part of their practice. This volume, containing three hundred and ninety-seven pages of clear, concise, interesting subject matter and one hundred and six excellent illustrations, more than meets this demand. Each chapter, whether on cervicitis, vaginitis, sterility or some other gynecologic problem, contains detailed information of practical value. Methods of diagnosis or treatment necessitating hospitalization or expensive equipment are not discussed. Of especial value are the chapters on postpartum care, premarital advice, sterility and contraception. This volume is highly recommended to the general practitioner and should be of inestimable value to him.
