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. In the introductory remarks the editors comment on the desirability of the Morgagnian concept of pathological anatomy as a basis for the study of disease but point out that the blood is not an organ and that its diseases are reflections of abnormalities in the blood-forming organs. The work opens with a general section discussing the composition of the whole blood, including its total volume, the plasma, the general cytology and bone-marrow physiology, and the technique and general results of spleen and lymph-node puncture. Then follow chapters
