This handsomely printed and illustrated book is a sort of European analogue of some of the various "Advances" series which have become so popular here. There are comprehensive articles on various phases of the antibiotic problem—some in German, some in French, and some in English. The development of antibiotics, their use in endocarditis, untoward effects, secondary yeast infections, and antibiotics in pediatrics are some of the main chapter headings. There are comprehensive lists of references.
