This well written manual of handy size but containing over five hundred pages describes in clear but simple form the subject of tuberculosis. The general principles of infection, clinical features and general treatment are followed by discussions of special forms of tuberculosis, epidemiology, laboratory methods and related subjects. The discussions seem to represent sound current opinion. The volume is handsomely printed, and there are numerous illustrations of pathologic material, roentgenograms, apparatus and equipment for sanatoriums.
