In this sixth edition of an outstanding and popular book, the revision has been so extensive that it is almost a new book. However, it retains the personality and charm of Munro Kerr. Moir's style of writing is so pleasing and interesting that the reader forgets he is studying a highly scientific book. Throughout the book are illuminating reports of interesting cases observed personally by Kerr or Moir. Over 1,800 references are listed. The illustrations are numerous, clear, and instructive. The book deals essentially with the problems of dystocia and the complications of pregnancy, labor, and the puerperium. The advice given in the treatment of obstetric problems is based chiefly on the extensive experiences of both Kerr and Moir, but their views agree closely with those of obstetric authorities throughout the world. This book should be carefully read by everyone who practices obstetrics regardless of whether he is a specialist
