This guide to obstetrics has been written for the general practitioner, the obstetrician, and the midwife. Its authorship is unique in that it includes the professor of obstetrics at the University College Hospital, London, and a general practitioner in a semirural area. The contents of the book include: (1) obstetric questions that have appeared in the British Medical Journal during the past five years, (2) an analysis of midwives' calls in the county of Wilshire, (3) work in the obstetric unit, University College Hospital, and (4) the experiences of the authors. These sources have provided a very practical book that should prove useful to those concerned with obstetrics.
Normal and abnormal obstetrics are covered completely, although operative procedures suitable for the obstetrician are omitted. An excellent chapter on nursing and the practical care of the newborn was contributed by Harold Waller, a pediatrician. Analgesia and anesthesia are discussed by Shila
