The need for this printing was due to the excellent reception given the book by the medical profession. It is now the outstanding book for both the practitioner and the student who is concerned with the treatment of patients who have syphilis. Two new chapters have been added: one on the new intensive measures for the treatment of early syphilis and another on the measures adopted by the military forces to control venereal disease. Apparently Moore and his colleagues did not quickly accept these newer methods of treating early syphilis, and the chapter dealing with this subject indicates certain limitations in their practical experience with the various intensive systems that recently have been recommended. The chapter on efforts at control of venereal disease among the military forces emphasizes what can be accomplished in this regard when an adequate organization, trained in this type of work, is permitted to function properly.
