This is an excellent presentation of the etiology, diagnosis, prognosis and treatment of various disturbances of the mediastinum, the diaphragm, the pleura and the lungs. The section on diseases of the mediastinum covers 150 pages. The section on the diaphragm is briefer; the section on the pleura and that on the lungs cover 100 pages each. Seventy-six of the illustrations are reproductions of roentgenograms of patients illustrating the various types of disorders. Great emphasis is laid on the roentgen ray in diagnosis of the disorders treated. Comments on therapy are very brief. The volume is a serious and valuable study on the diseases of the chest.
