This is Volume 2 of the well-known "Manual on Internal Medicine" originally edited by Mohr and Staehelin. It could be called a system rather than a manual, for it covers the field of internal medicine in detail, with extensive documentation. It is a useful reference work. The present editors are recognized internists fully competent to carry on the traditions of the original work.
