This volume has now been before the medical profession for almost a year and has had wide acceptance as a useful textbook as well as a reference work for the office and the hospital. The contributors have been chosen as recognized authorities on the problems they discuss and have been given considerable latitude in the development of their chapters. Repetition has been avoided by grouping the diseases according to certain classifications, discussing, first, the characteristics common to the group, and, secondly, the special problems associated with individual diseases. Moreover, there is an excellent suggestive bibliography following the discussion of each disease. The volume proceeds, in four parts, to discuss the infectious diseases, systemic disorders, diseases of nutrition, allergy, metabolism, physical and chemical agents, and finally diseases of the nervous system. Because of its authenticity the book may be especially recommended as a modern textbook of the practice of medicine.
