The latest edition of this book maintains the high standards set by the first two editions. Owing to the rapidity with which the pharmacological world undergoes change, several alterations have been introduced in this edition, among them being expansion of the chapters on antibiotics, tuberculosis, arthritides, and hypertension. Although the chapters on rickettsial diseases and the origin of new drugs have been deleted, the essentials of these chapters have been condensed and included elsewhere in the text. A new chapter on therapeutic aids has been included, while the chapter on the treatment of syphilis has been reduced. Many new illustrations, tables, and references have been added. As a textbook for those to whom it has been addressed, it is eminently informative, readable, and up-to-date.
