Seven editions since 1902 indicate the extent to which this book has become a classic in British medical jurisprudence. The book follows the British rather than the American approach to the subject, although numerous references to recent American literature are included. A special section of the present volume relates to the war, with the forms used in England for reporting war injuries. Here the material devoted to the effects of blast is already quite obsolete. The concentrated character of the volume makes it necessary in many instances to limit the discussions almost to definitions. As a reference work on modern medical jurisprudence the book is quite adequate.
