Unlike the "Yearbook of Pediatrics," in which a great mass of material is covered in a rather brief manner, the content of this book is confined to relatively few subjects which are discussed thoroughly in a series of scholarly essays. It is a stimulating and satisfying contribution to pediatric literature and gives the reader an excellent foundation on which to build further from his own observations. It is provided with both author and subject indexes.

Toxoplasmosis is presented by Albert B. Sabin; virus diseases, by Horace L. Hodes; chemotherapy, by Benjamin W. Carey; electroencephalography, by Norman Q. Brill; vitamin K in the newborn period, by Henry G. Poncher; persistent ductus arteriosus, by Robert E. Gross; the premature infant, by Abraham Tow; tuberculosis, by Waldo E. Nelson; endocrinology, by Murray B. Gordon, and short abstracts of other subjects, by Adolph G. de Sanctis and George E. Pittinos.
