This edition represents an improvement in the textbooks of pathology for nurses. Like other books, however, the purpose appears to give pathology in altogether too concise form. Each chapter is supplemented by a series of simple review questions. A notable feature of the volume is the accompanying illustrations and diagrams, in which most books for nurses are lacking. The style is simple and clear. The section on general pathology may be considered adequate, but that on neoplasms is much too brief. Perhaps undue emphasis is placed on the results of obstruction, to which five chapters are devoted. The second part is devoted to clinical pathology, presented also in illustrated form. Instructors in training schools will find an improvement in this edition largely because of the illustrations.
