Since the first edition of this manual appeared in 1924 there have been many constructive developments in radiation therapy. The biology and physics of light, radium, roentgen rays and grenz rays are discussed in a thoroughly scientific manner, with appropriate illustrations of the various modalities in modern usage. The important subject of dosage, both qualitative and quantitative, is adequately covered. In the biologic-clinical section the changes produced in the skin by irradiation are discussed in addition to the technic of treatment as applied to different dermatologic disorders in the light institute of the Berlin University skin clinic. The authors are to be congratulated on having condensed a large amount of valuable material into a small volume that will be of great interest to dermatologists and radiation therapists.
