Although the book is intended primarily for the nurse, its scope should make it useful also for the medical student and practicing physician. Nursing procedures are given in detail and all the common communicable diseases are presented concisely with references at the close of each chapter. Many additional infections less often encountered in this country but now of special interest because of war conditions receive attention. There are chapters concerning yellow fever, malaria, dengue plague, cholera and typhus. Of the total fifty-seven chapters fifty-one relate to different diseases. Among the others is an excellent discussion of the sulfonamides in this edition. Numerous illustrations and fever charts are of added value and a glossary of medical terms will be convenient for the student. Any one interested in communicable diseases will appreciate the authors' work and the manner in which it is presented by the publishers.
