The collection of articles comprising this valuable book is written by eighty-two eminent authorities in the field of bacteriology and immunology. Each author discusses subjects to which he has contributed scientific knowledge, giving his conclusions as well as a general review of the work accomplished during the last ten years. In including papers of opposite views, the editors have occasionally duplicated subjects for the sake of clarity in cases in which divergence of opinion is held. The purpose of the volume as explicitly set forth in the preface is... "to obtain authoritative reviews of topics in which at the present time interest is particularly keen or investigation most active.... It does not purport in any sense to be a textbook, nor does it pretend to be a comprehensive survey of the whole field." However, as a reference book for the student, teacher and investigator it is an intensely interesting collection
