This is one of the best presentations of the subject of hypertension and nephritis that has yet appeared. The arrangement is systematic and effective. Every phase of the subject is described as though it were a clinical entity. Therefore, wherever one chooses to start, the reader will find a complete discussion in that subject. The author is lavish in his references to other writers and presents a huge bibliography as well as numerous well chosen illustrations. At the same time he presents in excellent English his own opinion based on an extensive experience in pathologic anatomy and clinical work. There are excellent chapters on tests of renal function, albuminuria, edema, uremia, the general subject of arterial hypertension which, at this stage, he considers merely a symptom, but later on a clinical condition, hypertensive encephalopathy and hypertensive retinitis. The discussion of the subject of nephrosis and glomerular nephritides cannot be excelled.
