Especially interesting in this new edition are the discussions of vitamin K, hypertension, new information concerning the liver, and a vast amount of information on chemotherapy. This edition does not represent a complete reprinting but is a revision. Already the type begins to show some effects of printing and, no doubt, the next revision will demand a resetting of the material. Incidentally, on some of the pages the addition of new material, as interspersed with the older material, has made a spotty appearance. This is noticeable particularly on pages 954, 939 and 1030 as well as on many other pages. It will, perhaps, aid the reader in determining which of the material is new. Dr. Meakins' book has found a place for itself among modern textbooks on the practice of medicine.
