The well-known monograph on acute poliomyelitis by Dr. Ivan Wickman has at last been published in English. The translation by Dr. Maloney, though faithful to the German text, is not too literal to distract the reader's attention from substance to form. As indicative of the value of this splendid monograph it may be stated that scarcely a report or a review on acute poliomyelitis appears without repeated references to Wickman's work; indeed, Lewandowsky in his extensive "Handbuch der Neurologie" incorporated the entire monograph as Wickman's contribution to the subject. Of especial value to those wishing to pursue the subject further is the complete bibliography at the end of the volume.
