The author is professor of general pathology in the University of Copenhagen and well known as a writer on immunologic topics especially. The volume is intended as a textbook for medical students and as a handbook for physicians. It is peculiar in that it deals essentially with the etiology and immunology of infectious diseases, including certain closely related topics. The strictly clinical side of infectious diseases does not receive systematic consideration. This is true also of their pathologic anatomy. The first part is devoted to the general subjects of infection and immunity. It is an excellent introduction to the study of infectious diseases. There are short chapters also on inflammation, fever, chemotherapy, allergy, blood grouping and protein therapy. The second part takes up the etiology, epidemiology and immunology of the individual infectious and parasitic diseases, not only of temperate but also of tropical regions. The writing, necessarily condensed, is clear
