From the author's preface "This volume is intended to fill a gap which has existed between the very elementary manuals of pathology and the abundant excellent larger textbooks and reference works. By the presentation of pathology in a compact and condensed form, it is designed to be useful to the medical student, to the dental student studying general pathology, and to the clinicians who must maintain familiarity with the foundation sciences of medical practice." In the first edition of a textbook such as this, one expects to find a certain number of errors and instances of disproportion. This book is singularly free from such defects. It is remarkably well balanced and admirably reflects the author's purpose. Approximately 23 per cent of the text is devoted to general pathology (of which 60 per cent deals with infectious disease), 5 per cent to oncology and 72 per cent to special pathology. Illustrations
