This monograph is unique. It is an intimate study of diabetes in Bergen over a period of sixteen years. Interwoven in its pages are instructive comments on all phases of the disease and valuable references to the literature. The author is particularly well trained to prepare this review and analysis of diabetes because of his broad education at home and his association with Hagedorn in Denmark. The volume is a valuable contribution to the incidence of diabetes in a community particularly suited to such an investigation because of its stable population, but, more than this, brings out the fallacies inherent in estimations of diabetic morbidity from records of diabetic mortality. The author is obviously so well versed in statistical studies of diabetes that all who read his report cannot refrain from the hope that he will continue his interest in this disease and extend it by a more modern approach
