This is the second book on brucellosis that Dr. Huddleson has written. The first, published five years ago, was a treatise on methods of laboratory diagnosis. The present publication not only brings that phase of the subject up to date but adds a wealth of clinical material. Dr. J. E. Debono describes the caprine form of the disease as he has studied it in the Island of Malta; Dr. A. V. Hardy contributes the results of his survey of brucellosis in the United States, and Dr. Ward Giltner discusses the animal and human health problems relating to the disease.

As brucellosis is probably more widespread than has been thought, such a book, which familiarizes one with the protein manifestations of the disease and the available methods of establishing a diagnosis, should prove of definite value to the medical profession.
