Events have developed so rapidly in the treatment of venereal diseases, particularly in this country, that nothing so static as a book can keep altogether current with the times. Although it makes a valiant effort to do so, this book falls short in some respects. The author is fully aware of the growing tendency in the United States to rely on penicillin alone for the treatment of syphilis, and he recognizes also the place of the newer antibiotics for the treatment of other venereal diseases. It is apparent, however, that experience in Great Britain with these drugs lags somewhat behind that in this country, and, as a result, the author still relies on combined treatment with antibiotics and the heavy metals for syphilis. Aside from the field of treatment, this little book is excellent. It is well written, adequately illustrated and indexed, and there are clear descriptions of such subjects
