The articles contained in these books were written as a series published by the British Medical Journal with a view to bringing general practitioners up to date on medical treatment. The books were published in Great Britain during 1936 and republished in 1938. They are introduced to the American medical profession by Dr. Reginald Fitz. The articles are succinct and practical but, obviously, not wholly up to date, as indicated by the fact that sulfapyridine is not even mentioned in the discussion of the treatment of pneumonia. There are also references to medicinal products which are chiefly British and which are hardly known by their British names in this country. For instance, in one place readers are told to purchase their rubber mattresses from the Dunlop Rubber Company in England and other material useful in allergy from another British company. Throughout, indeed, all of the references are to British agencies.
