This was written primarily as a textbook for nurses for courses in pathology. The contents consist largely of brief considerations of the general principles of pathology and in a similar brief way of the underlying pathologic changes of specific diseases as well as the special pathology of the various systems of the body. The last chapter is devoted to a brief discussion of the indications and interpretations of the common laboratory procedures. The style is simple and clear, but for purposes of teaching in many schools the sections on general pathology are altogether too brief. Perhaps for the average school of nursing this book may answer the purpose, but the recent rapid improvements in standards and requirements in many schools of nursing will demand a more comprehensive textbook on pathology. One worthy feature of the portion on special pathology is the clinical correlation between the tissue changes and the symptomatology.
