For many years the New England Journal of Medicine has been publishing reports of progress in various branches of medicine. Such a series was planned for the years 1938 through 1939 covering the specialties as well as general medicine and surgery. Each of the authors was asked to limit his statement to 4,000 words. Following each of the chapters there is a bibliography with references almost wholly limited to the years 1937 and 1938. Thus the reader who wishes to bring himself promptly abreast of current thought in a great many fields will find this a most useful volume. There is an excellent index.
