The advances in the knowledge of the tubercle bacillus and of tuberculosis since the previous edition was published nine years ago have been incorporated into the present edition without any change in Calmette's original plan. The book deals primarily with the fundamental—strictly scientific as distinguished from the social—problems of tuberculosis. There are four parts: the bacillus of tuberculosis, the anatomic form of tuberculous infection, its localization and routes of entrance (404 pages); experimental tuberculosis and tuberculosis of animals; the defense of the body against tuberculosis and the use of the reactions of defense in diagnosis; natural immunity and processes of immunization against tuberculosis. There are twenty-four fine plates in colors and many black and white illustrations. Calmette's great book remains a standard, comprehensive French work on the bacteriology, morphology and immunology of tuberculosis.
