Emil Novak is America's best gleaner of the world's literature on gynecology, particularly gynecologic pathology in its relation to clinical gynecology. He has devoted the major portion of his professional lifetime to the Laboratory of Gynecological Pathology of Johns Hopkins Hospital and emphasizes his belief that the full import of the subject of gynecologic pathology can be imparted only by correlating it intimately with clinical gynecology. Novak's book justifies his belief; in presenting pathology with its clinical interpretation in mind he has created a textbook which is excellent for students, practitioners, specialists and pathologists. He might, however, emphasize that there are intricate details and unexplored fields beyond common knowledge. His book is excellent for the general pathologist but perhaps his preface might have left unsaid "for the pathologist in this particular field"; his sound and useful and meritorious work is scarcely adapted to impart knowledge to specialists in gynecologic pathology.
