The first part of this book on some of the common diseases of the liver deals with experimental data showing the evolution of acute diffuse hepatitis to more chronic forms. The second part is devoted to a scholarly discussion of anatomicoclinical material in which the experimental observations seem to be duplicated and the transition of hepatitis is traced to chronic forms and eventually to cirrhosis. It is emphasized that cirrhosis is a form of chronic inflammation of the liver, slow in development but involving all the elements of the liver lobule. The author describes in great detail the various pathologic and histologic changes, many of which are well illustrated by photomicrographs and by drawings. Much of the material represents personal experimental and anatomic study. The author's own observations are woven with the work of others into an interesting and compact discussion of the various forms of hepatitis and cirrhosis. Briefly,
