This is an excellent textbook for students and a valuable manual for the general practitioner. The personal experience of the authors is apparent and their therapeutic and operative recommendations represent the standard methods of today. Many of the illustrations have been selected from American and European sources. The original illustrations for this edition have also been well chosen. The chapter on neurogenic dysfunction of the bladder will be well received. Urology in the female is adequately presented in a single chapter. Consideration of the etiologic factors of dilatation of the ureters and renal pelves in pregnancy is taken up under three possible headings: (a) mechanical, (b) muscular atony resulting "from the action of either hormones or of toxins on ureteral and renal pelvic musculature with resultant atony," and (c) mixed origin, viz. the resultant of the chief factor of atony and of compression by the uterus as a secondary cause.
