This summary of the present status of certain developments in hematology consists of 16 well-documented articles written in textbook style. There has been no such summary since Piney's book in 1927. The subjects covered are the absorption of vitamin B12, parenterally administered iron, exchange transfusion in erythroblastosis fetalis, the life span of erythrocytes, abnormal hemoglobin, radioactive colloidal gold in the treatment of severe acquired hemolytic anemia, radioactive phosphorus in primary polycythemia vera, autoimmune thrombocytopenias, surgery in hemophilia, acute fibrinogen deficiencies, factors affecting hemostasis in gastrointestinal hemorrhage, the blood in lupus erythematosus, chemotherapy of leukemia, the biochemistry of leukocytes, hematological recovery from irradiation injury, and agammaglobulinemia. The material is well presented and gathers, in convenient form, data widely scattered in medical journals. The book should be welcomed by all workers interested in hematology.
