The aim of this book is to give an account of the more important recent developments in the field of genetics. Although the literature on the subject is most extensive, the author has succeeded in presenting a relatively brief account. On the whole, however, the book seems more suitable for collateral reading in connection with a college or university course in genetics than for the general perusal of the casual reader even when possessed of considerable biologic background. To the physician the brief chapter on human genetics is naturally the most interesting.
