This textbook was intended to be intermediate between the voluminous reference books and the simple textbooks too elementary for medical students. The volume covers a mass of details in a sketchy manner. Only one aspect of controversial subjects is presented. In the field of bacteriology where knowledge is rapidly accumulating there are many disillusions awaiting the student who knows only one side of an issue. The illustrations in the book are excellent and the numerous tables which it contains are helpful in correlating information. This book should prove useful to the medical student in bacteriology.
