This book contains a series of lectures on the toxemias of pregnancy, given under the auspices of the Ciba Foundation. Following a page of introduction by Lord Horder are some two dozen papers on various phases of toxemia of pregnancy, human and animal. The authors come from many countries, and their various points of view are not to be briefly reviewed. The medical and obstetrical summaries by Pickering and by Browne, which conclude the volume, are especially useful.
