"The original purpose of this book was to attempt to achieve a balance between the art and the science of medicine. The hope of the Editors was to present material which deals with the practical problems of internal medicine of today, and to integrate this with those basic principles which will in all probability determine the medical practice of tomorrow." This book, in 10 parts, is edited by an outstanding group of teachers, and the contributors are capable men in their respective fields. The material in this edition has been extensively revised, and much of it has been entirely rewritten. Some new sections have been added. One such section on the care of the patient describes those principles of medical management that concern themselves with questions and problems likely to arise in the treatment of any patient, regardless of the specific disorder that may be responsible for his illness.
