The effort of the author has been to correlate "the essentials of pathologic obstetrics, presented in such a form as may, perhaps, be suitable for senior medical students, or for busy practitioners." This he has accomplished in a thorough manner. The book is apparently based on the published notes of the late Herbert M. Stowe, which the author has amplified and brought up to date. New subject matter has been added, especially on the topic of cesarean section, concerning which a criticism of his stand on repeated section might justly be made. "Once a cesarean, always a cesarean" has not become the accepted dogma, although McNeile adopts it.
A little more care might have corrected numerous typographic errors.
