This book is designed to put in concise form the present knowledge of various conditions in the field of obstetrics and gynecology. Each chapter considers one problem. With such broad coverage, it is inevitable that the subjects are discussed in a condensed fashion. The author emphasizes things of practical significance at the expense of more basic studies of equal importance. He has also chosen to build up the data behind what are apparently his own conclusions. The British viewpoints and work are stressed, which makes it surprising to find, for example, such incomplete reports as those dealing with the anemias of pregnancy. The discussions of some of the malignant diseases are so condensed as to be grossly incomplete. There are some references at the end of each chapter; but these give altogether too much stress to the British literature, which in itself is incomplete, and almost none to the non-English-language
