This is a short descriptive pathology, a classification of the chief morbid changes, with their etiology, and gross and microscopic appearance as they occur in the different organs. There is no theoretical discussion and no discussion of controversial subjects, such as the pathogenesis of edema or the origin of tumors. The material is arranged according to the etiology or the character of the changes, without a special part dealing with the pathology of the different organ systems. The book would be useful chiefly for students as a preliminary survey of the subject and would have to be supplemented by a more extensive work. Its small size and brevity make it convenient for rapid reference or review.
