The popularity of this book is evidenced by the fact that it is now in the fifth edition. The practitioner who finds it necessary to brush up quickly on the points concerning some disease, the student preparing for an examination, and those who must rapidly revise their knowledge of medicine in general will find this synopsis most admirable for their purposes. In this edition many new articles have been added. There are discussions of Brucella abortus infection, tularemia, yaws, postvaccinal encephalitis, sickle-cell anemia, agranulocytosis and other disorders only recently described. Many of the chapters have been rewritten to make them conform with recent discoveries. Some unnecessary material has been removed, so that the size of the volume has not been materially increased. The usefulness of this book is unquestioned and its value is increased because of its completeness and accuracy.
