A much-needed reference text for urology has been compiled and edited by Dr. Campbell, Emeritus Professor of Urology at New York University. He has already become widely known for his classic work, "Clinical Pediatric Urology." Urology has grown so rapidly and now encompasses such a wide field that comprehensive coverage is impossible for one author. As stated in the preface, "To achieve recognized authority for Urology as distinguished from mere compilations gleaned from others, outstanding collaborators were enlisted. Many of these contributions are classic monographs." Fifty-one authors collaborate with Dr. Campbell in this encyclopedic work. One receives the impression on reading through the volumes that he might be attending a conclave of essayists never before assembled for a urologic convention. Literary style, illustrative techniques, and manner of presentation vary so widely from one chapter to the next that the reader's interest is well held.

Three volumes are divided into eighteen
