This German textbook on diseases of children is written by some of the outstanding men of present-day Germany whose names are familiar to practically all pediatricians the world over. The book is a compact volume without illustrations and is complete for its size. It contains little in the way of reference to articles as it is purely a textbook. The various body systems are discussed, and there is an introductory chapter on physiology, examination of the child and hygiene. The last chapter, on general therapy, terminates with a table of the most important drugs to be used in pediatrics. On the whole, the book should be useful for practitioners.
