An introduction to this book has been written by F. E. Colien of Creighton University School of Medicine. The book is divided into three parts. Part 1 concerns general bacteriology and consists of twelve chapters; part 2 deals with systematic bacteriology and considers the specific infectious agents, which are discussed in twenty-two chapters; part 3 concerns general technic, which is considered in three chapters. The author has omitted the word "medical" from the title of this edition, since the book has been used by junior students of bacteriology in faculties other than those of medicine although the author primarily intended it for the medical student. There is no bibliography given, which makes the book useless as a reference guide. The illustrations are good and the tables are concise and very useful to the student in differentiating infectious agents. The book should prove useful to the medical student.
