This text on pediatrics will be useful to students and general practitioners of medicine. In the preface, the authors give two reasons for sponsoring the second edition: first, medicine is moving so rapidly that the print is scarcely dry before there is something new on the subject; second, new subjects have been incorporated that were not included in the first edition. These subjects, rare in textbooks on pediatrics, include medical supervision in summer camps, cardiovascular surgery, viral hepatitis, erythroblastosis fetalis, and pancreatic fibrosis. The material is printed in two columns on each page. The book is easy to read, and each chapter contains a bibliography. Dr. Grulee's experience as a teacher of pediatrics, as editor of the American Journal of Diseases of Children for many years, and his official position with the American Academy of Pediatrics make him particularly well qualified to select the proper authors for the various chapters.
