This is one of the standard, excellent textbooks of medicine, considerably revised not only by extensive clarification of many subjects but also by the inclusion of new portions which are timely. Among the latter are chemotherapy, including penicillin, and certain wartime pathologic states, such as crush syndrome and blast injuries. Moreover, new stress has been laid on the importance of preventive medicine and some recent concepts of psychosomatic aspects of medicine. Altogether the book is well arranged, well written and easy to read.
